It sounds interesting, but I don't know much about the business, maybe it would be good to talk to someone about it!

Thank you and I certainly will take a look at your gallery!
These zombies are quite simple really, I start with an old broom stick, and use empty plastic bottles to create a basic shape (duct tape comes in handy here). Then I fill out the form with wadded up newspaper, cardboard, basically anything i can shape and hold in place with tape. Once a basic torso shape is obtained I cover with a layer of paper-mache, I use plain paper towels and for the glop I use 1/2 water and 1/2 glue (like elmers glue, i buy it by the gallon) and I add a little paint to the mix and apply a few layers.
The ribs are either rolled up newspapers or rolled up cardboard tubes from the inside of a paper towel roll, the arms are made in a similar manner with a layer or 2 of paper mache, allowing overnight to dry in front of a fan. Tou can work textures into the paper mache while it is wet.
I make my teeth out of oven-bake sculpy. I use a cheap water-seal product and a couple coats of spray on polyurethane for water proofing then I dry-brush some different earth-tone colors (cheap acrylic paint) and then I use cheese-cloth dunked in the paper mache mixture and rip it up and stretch it over the zombies for that stringy rotted look....whew!
Feel free to send me a note if you have questions...
