I finished the fence posts.
First I cut up 2 sheets of 40mm foam to make the posts
Next I cut out a border. I used a 20mm foam board for the border
I kept the inside of the border to cut out letters from. I used my longest phrase as the rule for the letter height. "Turn back"
Here's everything put together.
Before painting, you need to sand everything down. Take off all of the sharp corners and I like to sand everything a bit, because it makes it easier to paint. (less little pores.) Not a great picture of this because it's back-lit, sorry.
I also added some skulls to the top. These were foam wig stands. They store only had 2 and they were different shapes. I thought the round one would be OK but after I lopped their heads off I found out they were hollow inside. That meant I couldn't sculpt the head down on the close one.
I might redo it, but I have to move on. The clock is ticking.
Here are 3 of the posts painted gray and then shaded with black and chocolate brown. The chocolate is coming out a little purple, but I like the 3 colors. We'll see how it looks when it's dry.

I also bought some plastic vines I'm going to drape on them.
Now, it's time to cut me some trees
