I need someone to build me a good Tombstone with lots of lettering on it. I am in the Tampa, Fla area. If anyone could help, let me know.

I suggest a visit to a graveyard with a digital camera will inspire you.
The older the graveyard the better. The newer cemeteries tend to have flat boring markers. (they do that for easier mowing & up keep) Viewing these older markers & statuaries should led to inspiration of your own designs. Don't forget to respect the departed so, don't use their real names or information. I've made many trips to area graveyards & they were very fruitful for inspiration. Plus if you make it yourself, no one else can buy the exact same tombstone.

Try experimenting with foam to make the tombstones. With a few simple items: pencil soldering iron, propane torch, or heat gun. make the difference in aging them. If you use the "wet techinque": run water over the foam stone, then add heat to the wet area, it will age it. Foam is lighter & might have to be anchored due to wind.
