Sorry to sound stupid, but where do you find Gel Coat?
Gel Coat is a form of liquid fiberglass. It has two parts a resin and hardener.
I use it to get a little extra toughness on foam projects. You have to coat the foam first with a laytex primer to seal it. (any laytex paint) If you don't the gel coat will eat and dissolve the foam.

Ok here is a day shot.
You can see the finished paint job. I use an exterior laytex grey base coat first. I then spray everything down with water and roll on white and moss green lightly. I mist things as I go with the hose to get the effect that I want and let dry. (trick is not to use to much water) I may add some grapevine soon and real moss for an even better effect.
This graveyard started years ago with the tombstones. The following year we added a fence. The next year we added the gateway pillars. 2007 brings this entry feature addition. Next year????
The crows are from Cabela's. They are plastic decoys and the price is right. Less than $20.00 shipped for all three. We also have the feathered crows but had problems last year when it rained, and rained and freekin rained most of October. The beaks melted and I rebuilt them with JB Weld epoxy.
