Trying to create the atmosphere of a stone dungeon or castle
for your haunted garage, yard haunt or as a display for a
Halloween party has always been a challenge, primarily in
the construction of walls, so that appear to be made of
the past, some have used sheets of plywood, painted with light gray paint, then either by
hand or using a spray gun, painstakingly painted in stone detailing with darker
paint to give the impression of individual stones and mortar.
Others have used a similar
procedure on foam-board. First, carving some of the foam out in the shape of stones to add
some three dimensional depth, painting it with a light colored gray paint, then
highlighting the carved areas with a slightly darker paint.
Both of these methods have had
results ranging from fair to realistic. But the main drawback has always been that it is
an arduous, time consuming task and tends to be expensive, particularly when large area's
are to be covered.
