Try Cobwebs in a Can !

I kid thee not. CobWebs in an aerosol spray can. I first saw this last year, could be older though. They actually look pretty darn good from the pictures and movies.
Here's one of several links to the stuff:

and a direct link to the sales video: http://www.ghostride.com/products/cob_we......clip.wmv

Cracks me up.
The stuff is an adhesive too, so, whatever you spray it on ... don't count on getting it off.

Cobwebs...!

How about 'Instant Old Age' in a spray can?

We are busy putting Phobia House together right now. I pulled my giant, (5 meters across) painstakingly handcrafted spider web from its box last night. It is a very bad idea to use what we use for cobwebs on something, then pack it up for a year. Smile
What we use is a specialty hot glue applied with a pressurized gun. It looks incredible and is UV reactive (glows under black light) but has the drawback of being - HELLO - glue. My web is stucker than stuck, so my schedule has been cleared for this evening.
Point is, it sounds like someone has replaced our fancy hot glue gun with a can. Amazing timing, Mystician.

I love my hot glue webber, but ther are definatly places where you don't want
to use one. Always nice to have options.

I was thinking of getting a hot glue webber myself, now that I finally own a nice air compressor.
Cobwebs in a can look awesome, and what could be easier than shoot'n'spray, but, on the down side, it'd get expensive, and two, it is an adhesive, whereas the glue gun based stuff, while also being an adhesive, doesn't stain nearly as much, and for the most part, I would think is very easy to remove.
The other method I was looking at is the typical web spinner, which utilizes a can of thinned rubber cement (I think), and a small fan prop from a small fan, which is mounted on a drill and spun, flinging out RC from small holes in the can. I think Terror By Design had the original, not sure.
That stuff though, is harder to get off and will definitely stain items.
Argh. Decisions, decisions .. on the alt.halloween.boo newsgroup, someone recommended the web spinner over the gluegun webber for realism though.
Thoughts, recommendations ?

There are two reasons that I prefer the hot glue over the spinner.
The first, and most important, is that the webs created by the spinner
are much more flammable than those created bye the hot glue webber.

The second is that you by inexpensive, UV reactive hot glue sticks.

Oh, and I learned how to make hot glue webbers a couple of years ago
at FrightFest, so that is a plus too. I think you can find plans for one
online. It really isn't too hard.

Yep, Minionsweb is one such place with the plans.
Flammability was a factor in favor of the gluegun webber.

Funny how some of those webbers get really pricey. I mean, the only difference is the wattage of the glue gun, isn't it ? 80watts a good minimum ?
