    Above is the finished product. Below is the inspiration; a grainy screencapture from YouTube of a TV intro from a show that is 40 years old. I tried to enlarge this image enough to trace onto my foam, but it was waaay to grainy and just disintegrated... So back to the drawing board. Below is an...

    Looking to make a hand reaching out beside the a gravestone. I searched around and can't seem to find it. I've found the tombstone poppers/peepers, with the head popping out, but thats not what I am looking for.

    Thanks for all your advice on how to engrave my gravestones after I already painted them. I went with the drimmel and a crafting edger to carve into them and just repainted over the carved out area. They're turning out pretty well! (pictures soon) I need some ideas on what to put on the rest...

  11. General Halloween
    Hi all, I have been asked to make a couple of tombstones to go in the window of a local bakers shop for Halloween. They have left the epitaph up to me with just a few conditions. No swear words or references to sex? in other words they have to be child friendly. I wanted to do something funny...
  12. General Halloween
    Hiya fellow haunters, On a recent road trip, we stumbled upon a tiny, and very old, cemetery. I snapped a few photographs in hopes that fellow haunters may also glean inspiration. The older cemeteries have such unique typography, intricate symbols, interesting shapes, moss & lichen varieties...

    After Halloween I tend to go to Halloween city or Spirit to find clearance items that I can use to animate some of the gravestones. Also rather than rely on the motion or sound detector to set them off I take the demo button, sever it from the outlet, and extend the wiring to a homemade pressure...

    Not all tombstones in a graveyard are old and decrepit. I made this stone to go along with a new prop and storyline I am using for my yard haunt this year. I live on a street called Saintsbury and the houses in this area were all built n the 80's. I decided I would make the Saintsburys, an...

    Hello again my fellow haunt addicts! I decided my cross was missing something so I added a plaque with a name on it and also some moss. I think it looks much better now. A bit more moss and perhaps some ivy and I will call this one complete. :)

    Last year was my first year doing a home haunt, and while I did get something decent put together, I didn't have time to finish carving my tombstones. I used Terra's method for construction, and used Dry-Lok for the stone effect. But I can't live with blank tombstones, so I needed a way to...

    Hello everyone! I've been a lurker for quite some time, and am still relatively new to the haunting community. Before I ask my question, I just want to say that I am constantly blown away by the amazing work I see posted on here. My hat's off to each and every one of you. So, here's my...

    As always ... scrambling to put finish off this year's props the week before Hallowe'en. I am struggling to get a realistic aged look for my tombstones. I've attached a file of the result of my trials so far. Any advice from experts? I have brown, grey, black, and white paints with which to...

    I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Beloved tombstone by Terra (I'd post a link but this is my first thread, so I'm not allowed to haha) This beauty has been a HUGE inspiration for me this year! Needless to say, I've been dead-set on making one of my very own for my graveyard this...
