After 2 years of being on this forum, I finally got the "huevos" to work with foam. I completed 2 tombstones and a pumpkin (he'll be painted orange this weekend), all out of 1" blue foam. I am amazed at how easy it was (and is) to work with. None of the techniques that I used are original, my main inspirations were from Terra and SKAustin (you guys are the best!). I have two more "stones" on the drawing board and I would like to try to make a "rot" inspired pumpkin head (24" x 19")...

Well yeah, the pumpkin is awesome! But the stones are fantastic! The fonts on both are perfect! The first one is my favourite!

My jaw dropped!

They are amazing, creative and look a century old. You did an amzing job working out innovative designs and painting. Hat off to you. Love the pumpkin also.

Thanks for all of the encouraging, kind words! I have learned that I am my most harsh critic when it comes to my work and even I am proud of these! Thanks again everyone!

Aren't we all!? I know I am... The pumpkin is AWESOME and blue glow is genius (even if accidental). It totally differentiates your decor by a landslide, until I make my own! You might even make the news with the blue pumpkins of San Diego County. The stones look great. You ought to let the self-criticizing subside this time and let it be.

They all look fantastic! I'm mulling over the idea of making my own tombstones this year as well and I gotta tell you I'm a little scared to try it. I don't think I'm talented enough to make them look great.

That was your first time??? Wow looks like you are a natural. LOVE the stone of debt, I had to send that one to my husband so he could get a good laugh like I did.
