Catching up...

Aaaand here we are a month later. Life has been crazy. I flew home at the beginning of the month for a 30th birthday party and then my dad ended up in the hospital for just over a week...and I've been planning a Halloween party, which has sadly occupied most of my life right now.

Here's my most recent project for the party:

Gravestones!! These are made of foam insulation sheets and carved with a WonderCutter hot tool and my old pottery tools, and they're modeled after the gravestones surrounding the Haunted Mansion at Disney World.

In progress:

Individual shots of a couple:

And stacked together:

I'm about half finished with the carving. I'm hoping to finish that today and then paint them and distress them tomorrow. *crosses fingers*
