I love decorating for Halloween and realized I didn't have a tombstone!! So I decided to use a sheet of Smoothfoam with my Hot Wire Cutter to create a tombstone. So quick and easy and so much fun to create.
Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter
Plaid Paints - Delta Ceramcoat - Ink Blot, Antique White, Charcoal
Folk Art Coastal Texture Paints - Sand Dollar, Seal Grey
I began by drawing the tombstone on a sheet of Smoothfoam.
Next I painted the tombstone with Coastal Texture Paint in Sand Dollar and Seal Gray, mixing the colors together. Then I put it aside to dry.
Once dry, I used the Hot Wire Cutter again to create the "cracks". With no specific plan in mind, I created assorted "cracks" around the tombstone.
Check out how defined the cracks are and how small I was able to cut them.
For definition, I paint the cracks with black and white paints. Using a stencil, I added RIP down the center with blue paint.
To give it a more aged appearance, I added more black paint around the edges and used a baby wipe to blend it in.
Finally, I added some mesh along one side creating a cobweb effect down the side.
What do you think?
I love using the Hot Wire Cutter for projects like this.
Thanks for stopping by.
