Ok not completely new. I made these a few years ago but wasn't happy with the epitaphs on them. So I turned them over and painted the back side. I'm so much happier with them now.

Those look great! The shading is really nice.

You can also sand it down and start over as well :D

Thanks! One more to go. I'm still working on my Celtic cross, I'm adding some knot work to it!

Great stones! Looking forward to the celtic cross. I made two crosses last year so I know how tricky the knots can be.
