    What are the best things to use to construct your own static props for a fairly cheap price.

    I know about using PVC pipes, chicken wire and paints. But im confused on what kind of foam product to use, or if I should use some form of latex?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated guys! Thank you!

    I use a lot of latex for props. As far as foam goes, I use those big 4x8' pink sheets at home depot for a lot of stuff. I still haven't figured out where to get big foam blocks for carving stuff out. I know some people buy the stuff for couch cushions, but I want to get something more for large theater props.

    Have you seen my youtube channel? I cover alot of materials and techniques and am very budget minded.
    Plastic, tinfoil, caulk can all make great props for a haunt. Not to mention traditional things like paper mache.
    here is a link to my channel, I have tried to name everything so it is self explanatory. Check out ROUS, Ogre head, Halloween scarecrow, and my Kappa videos for full size cheapo props.
    If you mention a specific thing you would like to build I would be happy to help you.

    REMY- in google enter EPS manufacturers and your city- that is where you can get big white blocks.

    Wow. Thanks so much. I have looked all over for them.


    Also No_regret, Allen has a ton of videos. I really think you should follow his links. I have learned a lot from him.
