How many of you tend to work on 1 prop at a time?

2 or 3 props at a time?

3 or more props at a time?

Can't do only one thing at a time. Brain isn't wired that way. Work on several things at once, that way, I'll have a bunch of unfinished projects laying around that drive my wife nuts. Fun fun fun.

I always try to work on one at a time but for some reason something from the first project leads me to start a second. Before you know it another project gets started. I Currently have three projects in the works at the moment. A fourth one will be started at the end of April when the NJ make and take group meets. Hopefully when I go on spring break I'll be able to finish at least one of them so I'll be back down to three.

This has got to be one of the easiest questions to answer in this whole section! I have about 6 started right now and about 3 pages of things I need to accomplish before the party and haunt. I have every intention of just doing one thing at a time, and when it's finished just move on to the next one. Then something strange happens. Say I'm working on a wig head...I have most of the items I need right there with me until I realize that I forgot the hair, or the paint, or glue. So, I get up, walk down the hall to my craft room or out to the garage to get the stuff I was looking for. On the way to said garage, I see a piece of foam laying there, which has been there since LAST Halloween. All of a sudden, this piece of foam I've been looking at for months, seems to take form right before my very eyes, and now I just HAVE to work on this now, before I forget what it was I was going to do to it. Drag out the hotwire foam cutter, the markers, the stencils....and as I reach for the batteries for the foam cutter, I see a doll laying on the floor that I meant to transform last year. HMMMMMM, let me grab that and when I finish these other things I'll start on that. But wait, painting the first coat on the doll will only take a few minutes, so let me do that first and it can dry while I'm working on the other stuff. Anyway...you get the picture. I have a garage and craft room full of assorted, partially finished props, decorations and projects. Now if I can just get all the coffins finished for the invitations....or maybe I'll start on the other panels for the .......never mind! :googly:

It's the nature of props that it's often easier to work on more than one at a time. Sometimes a prop will be in a drying phase where you can't keep working on it, or it's easier to make several of something while you have the latex, paints or other medium mixed. I often find that the bigger projects like walls and fences often need to be always going in the background.

Vlad - thought you said dieing stage... not drying stage... which is where I end up getting more that I can handle... I hit a wall trying to figure something out and just have to walk away. This normally leads to something new I just thought up or found at the store (big lot lanterns) that kicks me off into another direction. Which in the middle of the third half baked project I think of a solution for the first. Hell there are still abortions of props still stilling up in the attic... but funny how I started/bought this and it turned into that! IE the prop1 was for a coffin prop that didnt work... but seems to be the solution for a scare zombie.
