This year my plan is to focus on building my walls and making them to theam, instead of using blue/black tarps in my past years...I have already picked up 37 2/3 for free I also got 13 pices of panalling so I got a good start I was waiting to find a deal on ply. So for now I was searching for wall idea's and how too's online but was wondering if any body had any good pics/links of good wall set-ups..My theam is a old run down prison and was hoping to find some other haunts to see what they might have done any hep would be great.....:voorhees:

new ideas?

I rather like the look of your walls and think it would look great thru out ,
But if you are interested for your old prison look try doing the same type thing only no individual bricks..
make your bricks one long piece like a log ( log cabin look ) and then paint a dirty whitewash or greyish ( for weathered look ) and use that wood grain tool on them.
dont forget the crappy cot( old tree branches tied in square and legs with a dirty sheet with holes maybe a tattered blanket , maybe a old plate silver colored or wood even with utensils a cup on floor sideways and show hole in bottom of it. haha dont forget the can in the corner for you know what ....your dowels for window. hook and chain on wall ,rats,maybe some straw on floor. ya gotta have some webbing too, maybe some in corner -naturally but also on some front bars. skelly prisoner with decomposed clothes. lock for door,keys hanging across they way.

Wall design ..saw a cool one at a haunted house i went to a few yrs ago:
they had like a greyish covering over skeletons ( bodies heads arms legs..whole and pieces)
that were protruding from the wall, like trying to get out.. i dont know what it was they used maybe a latex coating or could have been the joint compound.
you could prob make alot of this from foam cushion then it wil be lite weight also.
okay im rambling so later

well it all comes down to is what do you all have for walls, how much space you have for your haunt, if the rooms are going to be blocked off or are you going to have people walk through them... there are a lot of things that have to do with how you have things set up.
also, what props do you have, what theme are you aiming for, how scary do you want it to be, how many actors do you have, masks, costumes... all that has to do with how things are set up.
last year for my haunt i counted how many walls i had, i drew a map of my garage on a piece of graph paper, and then mapped out where i would put my walls (paying attention to how i would support them) then i planned on what rooms i was going to have.
hope this helps...
if not, sorry for wasting your time :p
