DIY FX.com is all about special effects for the do-it-yourselfer. Instead of being dependent upon decor and props available from local retailers, specialty shops and theatrical supply companies, we'll show you how design and build your own. We cover theatrical
effects, lighting effects, chemical & fire effects, prop building,
animated props and displays and all-round cool things to build.
Whether you are looking for ideas for a theme party, need
to make it snow on your Christmas display or want to scare the pants
off trick or treaters, we can show you how.
We start with the basics and show you all the steps you need to know
in order to create the effect. We don't assume you are experienced with
electronics or any other skill. If you find an article on this site,
and you need more information, submit your question to our forum or directly
to customer service and we'll do our best to get you the information
The projects you find on this site are explained from the perspective
of how we would approach them. That doesn't mean that there aren't other
or even better ways to do them. If you have a good idea and want to share
it, let us know.
