Okay. I went to the local graveyard to take pictures for inspiration and decided it would be based off of stones like this.

And here is what I did, all hand made. This is my first time making a homemade gravestone like this. That's all I have so far. I'm also going to do birth and death dates soon.

Looking good RDM! :)

I might give it a go next year of making my own one. I haven't got the time this year.

It's been a couple weeks and I didn't continue on it at all, then I realized how close Halloween is. So now in the past few days I've carved out everything else and I've painted the front of it. I've got pictures but I can't put them up until later.

I was trying to finish spraypainting but the wind blew the stone down into the snow and it got stuck on the top and front. I thought this was a bad thing at first. I put it in the tub to dry and the paint ran down it and made a badass accidental runny detail! :D I don't know when I'll be able to upload the pictures.

And here it is right before I went outside and filled in the rest of the green spots. It's actually the name and date of of a hamster I had that I got in 2009 and died in May this year. She was named after Lily Munster. I'll get better pictures later.

The accidental effect works very well.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.
