This drylock sounds promising. What is it and where do I get it? I have been wanting to make a big creepy pumpkin head thing with paper mache for a scary scarecrow but have read that even with several coats of sealer it wouldn't hold up very long outside. If drylock will work, I'd be willing to get started on my creepy scarecrow Smiley

I am actually making a paper mache pumpkin right now! Smiley The thing about drylock is it is bumpy so as long as you are ok with that go for it. I have heard of something else that is like drylock without the gritty stuff in it but I don't remember what it is called. As soon as I finish my pumpkin I will post it.

Here are two links to making pumpkins that I found

You know now that I think about it you could use monster mud to put on the pumpkin Smiley

B. Scott from Stolloween is REALLY great with giving EVERYONE tips.  His website is full of tutes and pics.  He also gives suggestions on weatherproofing paper mache.  You can even post on his facebook page if you are having problems and he will help ya!
