    Hello there. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my albums. Thanks for the compliment. To answer your question, I guess you just never stop trying to get better. There are so many pro's who I couldn't hold a candle to as far as this stuff goes, and I just study their work. I read all I can, apply the techniques I read about, and just have fun with it. Ive worked of and on as an artist for a living over the years, and you really have to always practice the basics of art, (as far as drawing, painting, color theory, figure study, ect.. all that). It really does help in all things creative. Oh, and dont be afraid to make LOTS and lots of mistakes, lol. !

    Also meant to ask you how you like Las Vegas? I have only been once in my life a few years ago. Walked all over to be sure I saw everything. Interesting place.

    You lost me on build out vs. in? Cardboard is a wonderful resource. I have seen some folks on here paint it to look like wood flooring or stone walls. Very creative. The foam board works good. To display them I buy 2.5 pieces of rebar iron and hammer into the ground. Then I use a long piece of small diameter pvc up into the tombstone and it slides right over the rebar. Very wind resistant!

    Most of my supplies are the usual items. Our Home Depot has the large foam board that is thicker and you can cut the board to make more than one tombstone.

    Agreed! I see these props for a couple of hundred up to thousands and there is of course no way! Please post a picture of your tombstone when you are done. I have made some (many years ago) with the big foam board. Very simple, but these were my first props as well! You can see them in some of my pictures. Just cut and painted and carved some items on the front. Not very realistic but I still like them better than the cheap ones I see for sale. I want to try one this year with the foam and monster mud to make it more realistic. What is a reaper tombstone. Will it be a regular tombstone with an addition etc? Sounds interesting.

    That's great. We all start somewhere. I look at my earliest ones and have redone some things over the years, but like the fact that I made them rather than shell out big $$ to buy them. Plus, you have something unique! Great job!
