  1. Qberg, how do you brace your coro cut outs?
  2. Has anyone used a kilz primer on there coroplast cutouts? The Krylon Fusion paint works but it's hard to spray it on evenly and it likes to run if it gets too thick.
  3. That's what I'm looking for. I just would like a side view version. I'm going to have to watch the DVD and see if there is one.
  4. Thanks, I take that you put the DVD in the computer and use snag it? Is this something you download?
  5. I'm starting to work on some ideas for some new characters for my display. Since I was a kid, I have always loved the original Rudolph classic. What I would like to do is a large cut out with Santa in the sleigh and all the reindeer hooked to the sleigh. From the classic. I can't find any images online that will seem to work. I want to put it on my roof as if they have landed on it. Has anyone ever done this or have and images? I will also make some of the other characters for my yard and I have already found plenty of those images. Any ideas?
  6. Looks like I'm busying some to try a sample paint job on a piece of left over coro. What type of sealer do you use? Also does it cause yellowing? Not sure what this quote button is. Haven't figured it out.
  7. Thanks. Looks like I'm going to buy some and do a sample paint job on a piece of left over coro. What type of sealer do you buy? Also will it turn yellow?
  8. So you do use them or you have used them? The exterior paints I used last year worked great but my paints are going on 3 years and I'm not sure if paint expires. I don't want to pay $10 a quart again because with all the different colors would cost me over $200 bucks. The Home Depot doesn't sell the sample sizes in exterior colors. Do you have to put a uv protection on the acrylics?
  9. Has anyone ever used the Decoart Patio Paint on their coroplast cut outs? I normally have used exterior paints from Home Depot but with all the different colors it gets expensive. Expecially if its a color il you only need a small amount for. Any feedback is appreciated.
  10. How do these motors plug into an extension cord? Do the come with a plug?
  11. I purchased a used old school overhead projector of of ebay for like $20. Then printed images on the clear paper. I also purchased coloring books and, would put the clear page over the image and trace it. Printer ink is expensive.
  12. What type of wood did you use and how thick is it?
  13. What type of wood are you useing and how thick?
  14. Well, I found out today that coroplast does'nt hold up to 50 mile an hour winds. I guess I should have braced them better. Donalds head was bent over and so was Pluto. The wind was so bad and the stakes in the ground were moving so much it created a bigger hole in the ground. Causing them to almost take flight. I guess I will have to go back to the drawing board on bracing better or back to wood next season. We have had such good weather this year in St. Louis. It could'nt have waited until after New Years? We had 50 mile an hour gust today, I'm sure wood would have had issues in it a
  15. Here is a picture of the back of my Donald Duck. Thanks for all your help this season on my first coro cut outs!
  16. I used 1/2" metal conduit and conduit clamps on my coro cut outs. That way you can losen up the screws on the clamps and remover the cut out before you mess with pulling the conduit. I think it will be easier without taking a chance of damage to the coro cut out. Hope this may help.
  17. Hello Everyone, Here are a couple pictures of my Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Coro Cut Outs. I put the front and back pictures of each. I used 3/4" pvc and fittings for the frame. I found it to me easier that wood and PVC wont weather. I used 1/2" conduit and clamps to fasten the conduit. Far as screwing the cut outs to frame, I used 3/4" long tek screws made for screwing metal lath to wood. The have a bigger washer type head on them (instead of adding a washer). Then just hammer the conduit into the ground. @ Bob, So far I have had no issues with wind or weathering and I live in the
  18. Hello, I just put up my c9 leds on the roof with idividual plastic clips. I want to also hang icicle lights but I didnt want to put more clips on. Any suggestions on hanging the from the extisting C9's that I already hung? I thought about zip tieing them to the cords?
  19. I used a black paint marker made by Sharpie for outdoor crafts. I hope, I don't have that problem!
  20. Here is my almost finished attempt at a Coro Cut Out. So far, I have found that going coro is way faster than plywood or MDO and way less expensive. I paid $12 a sheet compared to $30-$60 a sheet for plywood or MDO. I only needed to Prime it once, useing a white spray paint primer made for plastic. Wood soaked in the primer and I always had to give 2-3 coats on front and the back. I painted it with semi gloss exterior house paints. Another nice thing is that it is fairly easy to cut with an exacto knife. Easier to follow lines compared to a jig saw or router. I still have some outlinin
  21. What kind of wood did you use and how thick?
  22. Newbie, Those look GREAT! I was wondering if you could tell me what type of wood you used and how thick? Also I am wanting to do a Rudolph Theme. Would you happen to have the images of yours that you did in an email form? I like how yours look and I would to print them out on some of my transparent paper so I can use my overhead projector. Or can you tell me where to find them? My email is [email protected] Thank You!
