Making a Batch of Tombstones

We've been building a graveyard.

Mr. Jimmy brought home a bunch of very large packing foam sheets from work.
Maggs Mom and I went to work making tombstones.

First we carved out spooky shapes using my handy dandy electric knife my Bro got me.
Then we used craft knives to carve out details.
We even tried melting into the foam with a soldering iron.
We had loads of ventilation. We were outside and it was kind of breezy.

We used stone effects spray paint to lightly coat the stones.

We added detail with some white and black acrylic paint.

Here is a batty design.

And here is Maggs melting the foam into shape.
Can't wait to set this up!
