    It turned out fantastic and this is one that I would think would become a classic idea for any graveyard. So creative!

    The lifelike pose takes it to the next level. Awesome prop.

    The depth of the stone is coming alive now :) As for misspelling - DO NOT feel bad. Happens all the time (did it twice too). I'd suggest that's just where you do a little 'aging' ;)

    Basically what I'm saying is reserve the full-on black paint for where you want to create the illusion of very deep depth - like cracks or fissures. So, for other things (epitaph, bat, etc.) you'd use variations of gray to help give the illusion of depth but not black-hole/infinity type depth as you would find in a crack. The only reason that an epitaph would be black colored is because it was painted that way. But, that paint would still be visible only if it was a relatively new stone. I...

    You are very welcome. I'd say go the opposite direction. Use dark gray for the epitaph and repaint the cracks in the base color but don't be too careful repainting - leave some of the black peeking through. Then, follow up the crack painting a very thin brush using very black, FLAT paint. That will give a better illusion of a deep crack. Here's a video showing what I'm trying to say here at the 8:15 time stamp:

    Love the uniqueness of the tombstone so far. Great idea! I've also gotten a list of additional bits to use from this thread too. That 196 bit looks like a something that could also be used to do small carving. Just to underscore - you must use the low setting or else the bit heats up and you end up with a molten blob at the end of your bit. Also, be sure you use a bit that has the cutting surface all the way to the tip. The multi-purpose cutting tool attachment kit has two different bits...

    Hey Jonathan, sorry I haven't responded in a timely manner. I've had some family issues come up with my mother being sick and was graduating college but everything seems to be back on track now. If you still need someone to run the youtube page I can certainly do that. If you would like to reach me quickly you are more than welcome to email me at rddean@gmail.com . That email is linked to my smart phone so I know immediately when someone contacts me. Sad to say that I haven't jumped on these forums since shortly before your post.
