extreme webs..that's good turtle ......I agree.

I do not like the look of them during daylight hrs, cartooney may be right word infoamtek for me on this for day look ,
I think it's the oblongy circular holes that seem weird. and /or they are not sheer enough for daylight.

but when lit right they are awesome and look good . Like Ghostess has it in her entry way.

Personally I have preferred the realistic look of the fluid web spinners, that is the old professional ones. I once did a haunted house castle room and put up the threads, then sprayed it with the spinner and got the same look as Dracula's castle in the old Lugosi "Dracula". A little dusting with Fuller's Earth and they were perfect. I saw the beef netting ones all over "Knott's Scary Farm" and they just did not look real enough to me. Personal tastes I guess.

Very different. Beef netting is more like a cheesecloth, only really stretchy. Actually, it reminds me of a very thin sweater and is soft. I should make one out of it...lol

I had it all over the place, in almost every room and across the front of my house:

I adore the giant skull on the table and I love the bathroom decorating!

LOL... thanks y'all. I have WAY too much time on my hands.

Infoamtek, I agree... they don't look real at all. They're filler, and they do a good job at filling large areas fast. I like 'em. Webspinners are just not on my list of must haves YET, but when I get to be big time with an actual walk through haunt (instead of my house which we actually live in..lol) I'll start with those. RIght now, I have small kids, and those fragile webs would be gone in no time with them and the cats around.

Ghostess, how many yards of the beef netting did you use? And what did you attach it to the walls with? It looks to have a lot of tension pulling at it.

And how much wall covering? I love how you did the bathroom and would love to do that as a start. Where did you get the stone wall scene setter? I've seen it offered a few places and would be interested in who has the best kind and best price. Oh, and how did you attach that as well.
Thanks!

I never have used beef netting before - but have wanted to for the past couple of years - and have just arranged to buy several pounds of it this coming weekend. Having always admired it at Knott's Scary Farm, I'm eager to try it out for myself. :jol:
