    Halloween Props
    Hi, I've been the proud owner of a Don Post Full Moon mask for many years, and it has been stored in my closet for about 9 years now. I had kept it dry, stuffed with tissue to hold its form, wrapped in a plastic bag, inside of its cardboard box. Recently, I got a styrofoam head and I wanted to...

    Halloween Props
    So I got a Dremel 3000 for my birthday. I am hoping to use it for making Tombstones. What bits do you use the most for your tombstones?

  11. Static: Bit to carve tombstones with

    Halloween Props
    I've built a few tombstone and they come out pretty good but not as "clean" as the ones I see other people do. By clean I mean my letters can have some pretty rough edges, never a very "crisp" lettering. I use a dermal tool with bit and have tried a number of different bits like regular drill...
