Well this prop took longer than my pneumatic pop up to finish. I had no idea how to do the painting. I realize that mine does not even come close to some of the amazing work you folks have done. But I think it turned out pretty good. I did not carve anything in it but I affixed letters and the skull and roses to it to give it a 3D look. I got the resin cross from target. I needed something to go over my pop up frame to hide it. So I have to cut a slot into one side for the arms of the pop up to fit into. That is why it is so big. Looking forward to your opinions, thanks.
