Nice work! I like how you tilted the gravestone! Did you cut it that way?

Even if you're only able to make a couple things, I know you'll make them count! Your paper pumpkin looks really cool. It's amazing what you can do with just paper. Paper mache or even just paper pulp ground up in water. I've made some cool things in my day, and who would have guessed they it was just shredded newspaper creating the shapes.

i did indeed cut it that way lol :)
sometimes i do use some spray paint. more often then not i wet down the tombstone lightly with water and then take a blow torch to it! who doesnt love fire. makes for great effects and gets that randomness going on :)
yeah this wa my first time using paper pulp, so i didnt do anything like stolloween. its amazing and fun so i think i might get one more done this year before halloween. if so i'll have to add a face to it :)

side note i enjoyed taking a box knife and digging the tip into the sides of the foam. flipping it up and out to make the markings on the side.

Simply fabulous! I too love the angle of the tombstone.

I am trying my hand out at paper mache pulp right now too! And strangely enough it too involves a pumpkin. I cannot BELIEVE I have never done it before. It is such an amazing medium. Regular old paper mache is fine and all but the pulp...lovely.
