I recently finished off my 1st real prop of the year, and boy am I glad to be done with it! The DH doesn't really care about handmade gravestones (he likes more mechanical props), so he's not much use for feedback...



If the thumbnail turns out small, there are some closeups in my Halloweengallery folder here: http://www.halloweengallery.com/thumbnails.php?album=430

Any constructive criticism would be most welcome!

Very nice! I love the detail. Is it made from styrofoam?

Thanks for the comments, y'all!

The stone is pink Dow foam from HD, and I based it on this stone: http://www.gravematter.com/morrill5.asp.

That website ( http://www.gravematter.com ) has dozens, if not hundreds, of pics of gravestones ranging from the 1600s to the early 1900s. There's a link to "Interesting Carvings" which includes a lot of ornate stones.

This pink stone and the one I'm working on now are both based on stones that I found on gravematter.com.

I don't think it's gonna look good in your yard, so I think you should send it to: PO Box 548, Carmichael, Califor......LOL!!!! ;)

I don't have 30 posts, so the timing was irrelevant, but I would've liked to have entered it! DOH!

Excellent paint job on this one! I really envy you people that know how to paint a tombstone. I can barely paint the shed, let alone do any faux stone painting.

great job. I hope no one steals it this halloween. My gravestones weren't even close as detailed as that and I was devastated.
