Hi,

Just wondering how you all are doing cracks in you tombstones?

Somehow my cracks don't look right, I used a scriber, pencil and knife, but the cracks don't looke like cracks more like cuts

After putting in the crack try hitting it with a heat gun. It will open the crack and give it a more natural edge.

You have to wiggle the knife back and forth, and pop out little bits of foam as you go. Terra and SK Austin have videos on YouTube showing the process. A heat gun or acetone can help with the final eroded look.

Just a Swiss Army knife. Twist the blade as you go. Have some sections that are done with the blade turned flat so it's not actually cutting. Just hack and slash, go in different directions, have it branch off into two sections, have different areas be different widths, different depths, on and on. Experiment on a scrap piece of foam and see what happens. Have fun!

The Swiss Army Knife method describe above is what I use. Learned that from someone here on this forum or another one very similar.

The cracks in the stone from Nightfisher are as good as it gets. Going to try and duplicate those on my next one. Very nice work.
