Boris Mitendorfer: Cool idea and thank you for sharing!
TONS OF VANARCHY: That is so cool!
HalloweensFinest: Thanks for the reply!
PandemicCemetery: The white block is for controlling depth, I made it myself but HWFF dose sell one for use with there tools. The engraving tool is awesome for epitaphs and other shallow cuts. Thanks for the question!
HalloweensFinest: How are ya Pandemic? Quick question again on those tools..i may be getting the same kit soon, but what is that white shield on the tool you have there? It's used to control the depth of the cut correct? Also, i have the foam needed for 2013's tombstones, but can these tools be good for making cracks and doing epitaphs and stuff? I know this is a lot, i apoligize, just trying to get all the right info before i go and mess something up. I paid a lot of money for the foam. Thanks again!
Stacy Medina: show us how you made the block? excellent video--thanks
BestMagicEver: lets get started on the crack.....that made me lol
PandemicCemetery: The song is from midnight syndicate. Buy i forgot the name. Sorry
PandemicCemetery: Thanks! The block I made myself out of white nylon, but Hot Wire Foam Factory sells a fixture that does the same thing.
FatalHaloMedia: Great instruction man! Thanks for all the detail and for not missing anything. I'm going to try and do something like this in my son's room soon. That block you used to kep your depth even on the crack - did that come with the hot knife and wire kit you bought? What's it made out of so that the knife doesn't burn it?
sonicfreak04: whats the soundtrack? I heard it before from the haunted house I use to work for
gerbilkill: acetone is safer than riding in a car , women use this all the time for there nails i use it for polishing certain metals . lol im sorry that guy gave you crap for acetone, haha i just realized styrofoam burning is way more toxic than acetone lol . later bro nice work btw
KorbielowSki: Dear pa.,
Thanks for your message and clarification.
I was not commenting on your great artisanship merely your statement re: concrete&1912.
Near where I live there is a housing development which was built of poor quality brick, the exterior of all the buildings was covered in CEMENT with astylar facades and rusticated ground floor quoins; very fashionable in 1840.
Looks like concrete !
It was thought they might only last for fifty years but no, the're still standing.
PandemicCemetery: Your way too serious about halloween wall panels. I mean I'm glad you care so much but, were talking about Halloween here. I didn't want to sound like a pickle. I was just stating thay there was concrete block 100 years ago. Yes it might not br a perfect match to 1912 architecture, but its just for halloween. I don't think kids will notice.
KorbielowSki: Dear pa.,
Yes, do go on; where would there have been concrete walls not cement, that could get cracked like that in domestic architecture in 1912?
I can't think of any 1912 era architecture that would be like that, do you know of any in LA? that there are photos of on Google image?
Francois Coignet House, (not 1912)
robopony: Great video! I can't wait to see the wall after it's all finished and painted! Totally makes me want to make a sex dungeon in my basement like this. Seriously, though, do you work out?
PandemicCemetery: If you want to start getting technical on me.... Reinforced concrete was invented (1849) by Joseph Monier, who received a patent in 1867. But The Egyptians used lime and gypsum cement to form concrete blocks hundreds of years before that. In 1756 the first hydraulic cement was made. Shall I go on???
Thank you for watching.
I don't think there were any concrete walls a hundred years ago.
Concrete was not used as a building material in that way in those days.
PandemicCemetery: @josht25 No but that could definitly work.
Josh Thompson: i've made some rock bakgrounds for terrariums. The way i get rid of the straight edges like you have in your cracks is just pick away at the foam with my fingernails. You ever try that method?
