Sorry about the lighting. It’s late, and I just wanted to get this up for posterity. I’ve got a big Halloween project this year (don’t I always?), and this is where I start. What you’re seeing is a large slab of pink insulating foam, cut into quarters. As we were checking out, the clerk patted the foam and said it was so pretty, it was a shame we couldn’t do something crafty with it. The Spousal Unit and I both smiled, and I explained that, in fact, this foam is going to become gravestones. We then got off on a tangent about arts and crafts, and she showed us her great earrings and bracelet set she’d made from polyclay. I always love shooting the breeze with other creators!
It’s been a long time since I was able to make stones. These are from 2006. Having a shop in the garage makes things ever so much easier, but honestly, that’s the only thing I miss about living in that oversized house. I will find a way to manage these pieces in our apartment. Though I’ll probably make a massive mess doing it! Eh, that’s what vacuum cleaners are for.
Though I plan on treating myself to a new hot wire knife, I’ll get going with the equipment I have. This year’s stones will be a bit more complex, as they will be hiding secrets! Shhh! Can’t tell.
