So this year I decide to follow the example of a lot of you on this site and make some tombstones out of foam board. How long can it take right?

So I set off and begun my adventure in foam. What i discovered is: 1) Dremels work best with a router or depth guard 2) save the beer until the painting process (even though Oktoberfest is only available for a short time.) 3) a tape lint roller is the best thing to get foam dust off the floor mats in your wife's hot rod, it is messy (I know I was warned).

Now that I have all but 1 done I can start on the other projects that I planned for this year (and yes there is more foam in my future. I had a blast and am happy with the results.)

I love the celtic cross. The weathering and aging on it looks realistic. They all look great but that's my fav.

Damn, those are fantastic!!! I can only hope to produce something half as good for next year! (I'd do 'em now, but my budget's blown already LOL)

Quoth the Raven; Nevermore!

WOW... those stone are great! Especially the E.A.Poe marker! You've managed to make it very realistic looking and an excellent replica to the original in Westminster Prebyterian.

PS. Are you going to have a half bottle of cognac & 3 red roses with the marker?

Thanks for all the compliments! It was good times putting them all together.

Mr. Grimsley - as you saw i used the original stone as inspiration. At first I was trying to make an exact copy, but the carving surpassed my ability and attention span. The cognac and roses are an excellent idea! I would have thought about the "toaster" on November 1st. Thanks. Now how do I empty half the bottle? Hmmm... Let me have a drink and think about this one.

Actually, I think it looks much better without all the extra type on the bottom half!

Cheers!
