If your Halloween party
or haunted house
is missing that one great prop
, why not add a charred corpse
to spice things up a little? The first thing you'll need is a skeleton base. I've seen these recently at dollar stores, so they should be easy enough to find as we approach Halloween. Here are the rest of your supplies:
- A can of expanding foam insulation ("Great Stuff" is one of the many brand names)
- A tin of liquid latex
- Flat black spray paint
- Glossy bright red spray paint
- Small amount of acrylic black paint
- Small amount of acrylic brown paint
- Small amount of clear gloss finish
- Some old paintbrushes
- Rubber gloves
Follow the five steps in the article, and your corpse will be complete. The author suggests putting it in the middle of the dinner table and serving beef and linked sausages out of it. This creepy prop is sure to be a hit!
It's necessary that you do this project in a well-ventilated area or you'll be joining the corpse quicker than you'd like. The fact that you'll likely be out on the driveway or on your back patio charring a corpse will be sure to get your neighbors talking. Just hope that none of them call the police!
