    it’s great, I love it, it looks so simple watching you do it, but… you have all the equipment you need, when you don’t have all that, it gets much more complicated.

    This is a great prop. My concern with this one and which you do not show in the finished product, is the light hanging down from the top. How do you cover that to make it look authentic? It seems to me that the bowl should be clear with the light coming up through it from below.

    All your videos are super fun, and I have to say – one of my favorite things is that you also show the things that didn't work so well for you. Mistakes are a helpful way to learn. Thanks for the inspiration!

    That is absolutely fantastic! Never thought to put lights inside foam, and the fog with the green light was a great touch. Way cool! Ideas already brewing for next year.

    We used to make all of our own tombstones and decorations and had a really good display. Then stores started selling more and more pre-made items and a lot of people had displays but I don't think they looked any better than our homemade ones. I am definitely impressed with your creations and just subscribed to your Channel.

    I've watched a lot of videos about cauldrons throughout 2019 since it was my planned addition for my own haunt. Your video is one of the best and it literally came out this year as I bought the last cauldron at a local Halloween store! I was so glad to see your video because it's given me something to refer to when I take the time to improve upon my own prop.
    Things I did differently – I scavenged for some dead fall in the forest to use as my 'tripod' since I wanted it to look rustic. I also hid a motion detector with effects of spell chanting, bubbling, and sizzling embers all layered over each other.
    Thanks again and great job!

    By using a heat gun when applying a sealing layer of glue to the oatmeal/glue mixture, I was able to get some really cool drip effects.

    I used nitrile gloves to apply the oatmeal/mod podge/water mixture. Much easier than using a paint brush. Smear clumps on by hand 🙂

    Wow that’s amazing

  11. Daniella Cipollone May 13, 2020

    Looks amazing so realistic wow!!

    I did a similar effect with a cauldron and an ultrasonic mister to serve punch out of last Halloween. To keep the mister out of the punch I cut a 1 liter bottle to size and filled it with river stones to get the right amount of water. But for next year I’m excited to use your technique to age and gross-witchify the cauldron! Love the videos. Keep Austin witchy!

    Hi, good 🙂

    Aren't the string lights covered in spray foam a fire hazard or did you use LED? Also did you color the water and did you have to refill it?

    This project is a decent and great idea to start but I'd recommend these improvements. The foam you were using is called Fomular and it retails for 5.99 in California, I consider that to be pretty cheap it is also water-resistant all by its self. Using a PVC pond liner and permanently affixing the bowl to the cauldron to allow for permanent use. This could be done in many ways like using more expanding foam and then sanding, painting and sealing it (you could even just use the foamular and a small ring of expanding foam to hold it in place then paint both once dried with flex seal in black ). Pond liner should be able to be bought from a home improvement store. Mine has some that are cut to order and you wouldn't even need a lot to fit in that small area. You could use any one of the Liquitex line of painting substrates that mimic stone or small bubbles or many other things I used the sand one to replicate beer foam and it looks amazing (these can be colored with acrylic paint). This would have worked much better than oatmeal and Mod Podge also if you go the mod podge route use the outdoor mod podge. Also, do not put paint into water it will not work as a "wash" or anything for that matter (it eliminates the bonding properties of the paint hence why it tells you to clean it up with water or with soap and water). You need something called glaze I keep several large bottles on hand and you add your acrylic paints to it and it makes them into a glaze which is more transparent allowing for a build-up of color which is what you were looking for here on the embers for the bottom of the cauldron. A great way to get the cast iron look would be to sponge or stipple colors onto the matte black cauldron. There are even kits that help you create the look you were going for. This can all be done on the cheap too with Coupons. I use them all the time as I live below the poverty level and without them, I couldn't get supplies. You can use Joann coupons at Michaels. I hope this helps someone who is thinking of making this so that it can be used for a very long time.

    "Tee Pee"? I think you mean "Tripod". VERY very cool prop though.
