Beautiful job SK! I'm envious of how you get your letter to come out.
The trim around the base of the stones was crafted from scrap off of the same piece of blue foam from which the stones were made. The sides of the foam are "tounge and groove". The tounge, and either side of the groove are shaved off to create a flat side. The base trim was created from the remnants of the grooved side. The outer edges are rounded with sandpaper.Beautiful work, SK! If you don't mind my asking, what kind of trim/moulding are you using around the bases?
Thanks for the Compliments. That is certainly an interesting interpretation on the stone. The idea behind the design was that the reaper figure is open-armed, welcoming the body to its eternal resting place. Perhaps as if to say "Welcome, Have a rest and stay while."Damn, that is incredible work!! Having done some exacto work on last years stones I know how difficult it is to do that fine (smaller) lettering. No wonder you take frequent breaks. On a side note, the one with the skull gives the appearance of looking down the barrel of two tommy guns or BFG9000's aimed right at me... Just my Imagination???? Has the grim reaper traded in his scythe?? Again, that is some AWESOME work.
Thank you, but please, do not be jealous. Be inspired. It really is not as difficult as one might think.They look amazing! Great job. I'm so jealous!
