we are building a cave hall way this year, we have the chicken wire up and we are having trouble finding anything to stick to it, need some pointers!

Im building a cave right now also. I am using Wire screen as opposed to chicken wire and shooting it with tigerfoam.
I think the chicken wire works best with burlap and plaster. you mix a wheel barrow full of thin plaster and dip sheets of burlap into it, then apply them to the frame. If you can put them on the outside first (so they are not fighting gravity) then you can spray plaster with a texture hopper from the inside.
Since you are so far along already I hope this helped a little.

Because Joplin has coal mining as a big part of its history, we've been working on a mine shack and mine shaft in the Raycliff Manor Attraction. People will actually enter the mind shack, which leads them into claustrophobia and out into the mine shaft. These pictures are without the final layers of detail, such as cob webbing, explosives and other warning signs, etc. Please forgive our lack of photography skills!

Like Allen, we did this with window screen and tiger foam...

Nice Allen. Now is this for your Trail of Terror or one of the other haunts there?

We just finished spraying our Cave last night- I couldn't be any happier.
I was going to paint it today- but all the lighting effects inside do the trick, so no paint, just my new Ethreal FX lights.

Saw it today after the training... pretty cool. A lot of the Bog scenes are coming together, but still seems like there's a lot to do with only two weeks left.

@ kymberli23- I've been in the industry 16 yrs and been thru at least as many opening nights. Rest assured the show will go on.
