    Has anyone heard of powdered latex, and if so, do you know where I can purchase it online? I watched a program about odd things that briefly showed a guy making quick and easy molds by mixing equal parts of powdered latex and water. He said it took about 10 minutes to set. I've tried...

    I had a couple of fairly nice latex props before I got married; however, I had to get rid of them due to my wife's SEVERE latex allergy. She actually had to be hospitalized for it once. :( She and I both love decorating for Halloween and want to start making our own props. Are there other...

Been working on these off and on. They are constructed using a wire frame, rolled cotton, paper towel and...

    I'm considering doing some props with liquid latex this year, and I need to find a cheap source for liquid latex. I've done some searching on Google, and have only found 5-gallon buckets for over $300 dollars at Lowe's. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

    I've always been a fan of the zombie and every year around the beginning of October they arrive in full force. Some are old crispy zombies while others are more "fresh". I have standing, sitting, ground-breaking, and even crawling zombies. But then it hit me...for whatever reason they're all...
