Putrid's Crypt

4/18/2006 - More fun with Machines.

You don't have to know what it does as long as it looks cool.


Received a box form Daveo1101. One really cool odd and old electronic machine that will have a prominent place in our haunt this year. You just can't make them as creepy looking as the real thing.


The machine I'm working on now so for consists of,

 A Singer sewing machine box.

1/2 of a tissue box,

A large Quaker Oats box.

Two empty toilet paper rolls.

Two small boxes I'm making out of a cereal box.

And a Town House cracker box. ( yes it does resemble a pile of trash. LOL )

It'll have more boxes, wires, hoses, dirt grime and slime added to it as it get done. It's also going to have 4 plastic 2L soda bottles. ( now it really sounds like a pile of trash LOL )


Some things I want to experiment with.

Need lots of wire but don't have lots of money. Going to try using yarn, Latex paint and florist wire. Coat the yarn with the paint. I had thought about soaking it but the paint my stay sticky. Run the thin florist wire up through the yarn to give it some shape-a-bility.

Need hoses. Lots of hoses.

I have ONE hose. It's from our dead viaticum cleaner. Thinking about connecting strips of wood with wing nuts to go inside the hose to hold it in place. Wrapping the hose with foil or plastic and paper mache'ing myself some pre shaped hoses.


If I get everything I'd like to have done it will be a challenge to get it all displayed in our small yard. So far the walkthrough will take you through a pumpkin patch, graveyard, laboratory surrounded by and in graveyard, more graveyard then the fanally. Animated dead clowns.
