Default Grave marker

Here's an example of how changing the stepover on a background pocket can really mahe a difference. 91% on the bottom, & 51% on the pictorial. The 51% gives a texture similar to painting on canvas.
As usual, Donna painted "Pumpkin". 5 hours, it took her.

We're going to start pushing more of these "pet memorials". Decent money....we both like doing them, & I can probably get between 12 & 18 out of a $500 sheet of Corafoam.

Nice Work T.R. --- and Donna has truly captured the "soul" of Pumpkin in her artwork

Didn't notice it the first time, but what are the posts you used and how did you attach them to the foam?

Wes, the "posts" are 1" square tube steel. Notice the little pieces of flatbar to step on to push them into the ground?
There are 2 pieces of 1" flatbar behind the sign, through which SS lagbolts hold it all together. They take the sign in every winter, so the snow doesn't cover it entirely.
