Hey Everyone!

I've been dying to do a graveyard forever! This year I am in a new house with a larger front yard and a new neighbor that does an amazing haunt each year, so i figured it was time to step up my game.

So i just wanted to get a little feedback on how they came out. Things i could add, change, ect. This was my first time working with foam insulation, drylock or MM and I cant wait to add the the graveyard next year!

First time? Wow! You've done a fantastic job with these already!

No improvements needed on these - I will say, I like the higher contrast of the lettering vs. the stone on the Mercy L. Brown stone. It may not be applicable to all the stones, but the higher contrast really catches the eye and directs where you want someone to look.

Beautiful stones though - I really like all of them.

Thanks Joe! I was thinking that myself. For Mercy & Beloved i hit it with black spray paint but for the Warners I didnt want it too eaten away. i was hoping the tea staining would add more contrat

The only problem I see with your stones is that they're not in my back garden lol. very impressive. maybe some moss/green on the edges corners? it's details like this that only a few will see. The average Joe will just be blown away with them like I am. super nice work. how long to complete them all?

It took just about a month. There's also a MM reaper that's half finished that took up quite a bit of time that I don't think I'm really in love with

WOW - I'm blown away by the quality and the detail. I just don't have the patience, maybe not the skill either (haha). These are very professional.

Love to see more from you.

I like the homage to terras beloved, But really, this is your first crack at stones? I'm very interested in seeing your "second crack" at building stones, have a feeling that your fence is going to look great
