    The brown is a great color for a tombstone. Your cracks are the best I've seen - I just can't quite get the knack for those, heh.

    You may want to explore the music genre called Epic Music. It's the songs used in movie trailers. They are heart-pounding and some can be just a bit scary enough for Halloween but not overly so. Here's a couple of examples:

    Wow, Diabolik! What great ideas to quickly (and lightly) bulk out a zombie.

    Before I set this up - I have an LED Par light but what should be in front of it? I don't have a vaporizer but do have a small fog machine.

    Hopefully we can find why you aren't getting a lot of sand residue using Drylok. Before use it's thoroughly stirred to get the silica distributed top to bottom in the can. I do not thin it all. It is applied with a 1 1/2 angled brush and I make sure that the final brush strokes are always downward so you start to see the grain of the sand start to develop. The first coat will give you an essence of the stone-look but it's imperative that two coats are applied. The second coat's silica starts...
