Haven't you been a little busy here lately? Just saying... Give yourself a break

I second Spoils comment... actually you are an extremely talented artists who is generous enough to take his own time to share information with the haunt community, expecting nothing in return. I would say that's about as far away from sucking as it could be.

Soup because your jaw is wired shut!
A relative of mine hooked an antique , large sharpening stone to automotive power. It exploded, he spent along time sucking rather than chewing...
The older we get the faster time seems to pass =ing getting less done than we wanted to get done. (Or expected that we would)
Seems to me (from what I have read here ) that you are doing just fine, Allan.

Yeah Allen, for someone who has never met you before, you seem to do an awful lot of helping to complete strangers on here (myself included) and we are grateful and understanding. No worries my friend, you have a lot on your plate, and taking a little extra time to upload a video won't make you any enemies bud. :)

Checked out your website today for the first time, nice masks! Good luck with your new(?) services too.

Maybe I missed it but did you ever put up pics or vid of the cave you made? How did it hold up? Thanks!

I did a vid of the construction but I never went in with lights to get the finished cave. It came out great and held up awesome. Next time I do one I will paint the screen first with latex paint (two coats) just so I get less blow through of the foam.
here is the cave making vid

how many coats did you put on the walls to give it the thick shell

Allen H

Its one coat, thats all, it expands quite well and I have 1/2" to 1 1/2" thickness everywhere.

Thats Great did you paint it grey or anything

Allen H

I painted it dark gray all over then drybrushed a lighter gray, I then airbrushed a thin green paint in areas that might have a slime/algea build up, and the I added a dark brown around the areas that might have seepage so it looks like the seeping liquid has stained that area over time.
The last step was two coats of sprayed on polyurethane high gloss so the caves interior looked wet. I was very happy with the results.

It was lit by the laser and 3 UV minispots.

I bet it was fresh with the lights bouncing off the mirrors
