Great job with that.

So, this year I decided to do a garden Halloween party and I’m planning on putting together a little cemetery scene. I had 3 tombstones from years ago and decided to make a a few more.

Casperja, that’s awesome! I’m glad to hear you’re taking on the project. You can ask any questions you have here. There are a lot of other crafters in here and it might be good to get advice from everyone. Anyway, your Jack looks great so far. The foam you used seems nice and smooth. If it comes lik...

Last year I used a new type of foam, pink, and my jacks came out really bright orange. I usually use a blue foam and the old ones are a more dingy orange. Is what it is. Lighter color foam leads to a different color Jack … so I was thinking if I made a few more with the pink that it would be a good ...
