Spider tombstone

2915 21
My latest tombstone creation. This one is a bit different for me as I have never done a "funny" epitaph stone before. I was thinking of selling it locally so I made it "family friendly". This stone is a bit over 2 feet tall and 18 inches wide.

I just picked up a Dremel and some Styrofoam. Any suggestions off the top of your head to help a newbee along?
Yeah, Terra's videos are a great resource. I watched those too when I was just starting out.

Use your dremel on a lower speed at least until you get used to it. When you're routing out areas, go in smaller clock-wise circles when clearing out the foam. Take your time. Don't set the depth TOO deep (usually 1/4- 1/2 inch is sufficient). Use a small piece of scarp foam to test first before you start working on your larger piece.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be more than happy to answer them. :) Good luck!
