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

    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...

    Please note that auctions are okay as long as you mention in the post that it is an auction. There was a sticky posted regarding required prices that conflicted with other posted rules. I removed that sticky to avoid further confusion. mikeem99. You are completely correct that this was posted. We are looking into improvements to help make buying and selling easier. Thanks!

    Hello so glad you stopped by my page. I just got back from Home Depot and was ready to pull my hair out! I'm trying to figure out what pneumatic components I need to hook up a new airbrush. That stuff is CONFUSING! But I finally figured it out. Now I'm enjoying a nice fruity adult beverage....
