Seriously, Andrew, you shouldn't be copping real stones out of the local graveyard. Gives haunters a bad rep:googly::D

These really do look like stone - the paint job gives them a very realistic look and texture.

Sad to see Bugs finally bit it, though....:jol:

Paint it black with a roller, with sand mixed into the black paint. Then drybrush lighter colors. The obelisk has tan, brown and green on top of the black.

Those look great. The first looks like real rough cut stone.

Beautiful! I'm in the process of making an obelisk as well. Hope it turns out that nice. Really liking these both!

Very real looking. Agreed that the paint job is pro faux stone. what did you use to cut out your lettering? knife? or dremel? sumthin else?

Those are some nice looking stones. Really well done. Poor bugs though.

The first is my favorite - love the depth of the stone, the texture on the edges, the coloring, everything. Looks very realistic... as does the obelisk as well, but that first one took my heart :)

I agree with Dixie, I really like the texture on the rough cut, sweet looking stone. The obelisk is slick as well...I may have to try the paint technique.

Can you give the dimensions of the low stone and some info on how it was made? I'm really taken by this and would love to try a similar design. Thanks!
