    I have a couple of buckeys I want to make into corpses. I wanted to know a few methods people have tried on here. Please note I want to do this on a budget. Im not wanting to pay more than I did for the buckeys!!! LOL! Any ideas appreciated!

    P.S . I know about Gore Galores Kit ect, and many other methods but Im looking for the most cost effective way to do it. And it still come out realistic and good looking. Thanks!

    You can substitute carpet glue in place of latex, and that can save you some money. Just make sure you paint it after it dries, because the unpainted stuff will remain sticky even after it dries.
    Then there is the Elmer’s glue and paper towel method. You soak torn pieces of paper towel in watered down glue, attach to bucky as skin, then paint it once it dries.
    Also, for an interesting look you can use Great Stuff foam on the bucky, and before it dries hard, smear it around so that it doesn't foam up completely. Paint it once dry. Make sure you wear gloves while using Great Stuff. It will stick to you for a very long time if you get it on your skin. I think I still have a few patches on me from 7 years . lol
    I've also seen someone dip cotton into regular house paint, and use that for corspsification material.
    You should do some experimenting. You may come up with a completely new method.

    Did you use nylons on the chest and arms for the skin or something else? It has a nice tissue look to them so far... and I really like your choice of color palate. Really nice work...

    Thanks to everyone who replied to my post. Im willing to use latex thats no biggie! I just want them to look there best at the most logical price if you know what I mean. body Bags yours look really great. Nice pics! If you could tell us what all you used. They really look better than most that Ive seen .
    Thanks again,
    Damon

    Damon, for the most part I used all of the techniques mentioned above, each bucky done adifferent way , Ill be doing about 50 total this season and would like each one to look different in its own way.

    I dont know what happened with the pictures they werent so blurry when I put them on myspace. I apologize for that.

    I just placed a Torso that I corpsed out on ebay check out those pics, they are clear and crisp!

    Good luck with your corpsing, I actually find it relaxing !

    Those corpses look awesome Rob, it's a real shame that the photos look blurry. The torso pic is superb tho, for a moment I tought you were selling real body parts there LOL cause it really looks 'meaty' if you know what I mean

    Keep up the awesome work!
