Okay. I went to the local graveyard to take pictures for inspiration and decided it would be based off of stones like this.

And here is what I did, all hand made. This is my first time making a homemade gravestone like this. That's all I have so far. I'm also going to do birth and death dates soon.

Looking good RDM! :)

I might give it a go next year of making my own one. I haven't got the time this year.

It's been a couple weeks and I didn't continue on it at all, then I realized how close Halloween is. So now in the past few days I've carved out everything else and I've painted the front of it. I've got pictures but I can't put them up until later.

I was trying to finish spraypainting but the wind blew the stone down into the snow and it got stuck on the top and front. I thought this was a bad thing at first. I put it in the tub to dry and the paint ran down it and made a badass accidental runny detail! :D I don't know when I'll be able to upload the pictures.

And here it is right before I went outside and filled in the rest of the green spots. It's actually the name and date of of a hamster I had that I got in 2009 and died in May this year. She was named after Lily Munster. I'll get better pictures later.

The accidental effect works very well.
