Superb work, I really like the font you've used. It fits perfectly. I'm currently working on 17!! gravestones that I made last year. Just touch ups really but its never ending. Your work is spurring me on. :)

Wow, most excellent tombstones. The moss, the drops, the blood. I gotta get me some of that hot blood. Great way to get 3D drips. without a mess once it dries solid.

I love the new additions. That hot blood is great. And I love the moss as well. All in all that's some great detail and some fabulous props.

:bows his head: :kicks a rock: I guess I better dust my simple little tombstones off and see what I can do with them.

Me too I'd love to have a year round Horror shop.
And the angles, all pallid and wan,
uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy "Man"
and its hero the Conqueror worm.

How did you get the water streak stain effect on your stones?

I found those Hot Blood Sticks on Amazon. Those will come in handy! :twisted:
Whenever I have to urge to run through my yard naked, I drink some Windex. It keeps me from streaking.

Oops sorry this was missed. It is likely far too late. But I just used really watered down greenish brown paint. Laid it flat and put a whole bunch in the top crease...then stood it up and shook it a little to let it drip down.
