Gravestone Cemetery Halloween Craft Directions
Prepare your resin, according to the package directions, mix in black glitter and a little bit of blue. Then, pour it into the mold.
Use a lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure for at least 12 hours.
Once cured, take some green acrylic paint and paint the grass line.
Take both light and dark gray on your brush and paint the gravestone – you can add a little black paint if you need to darken it a little.
With a skewer stick, add blades of grass.
With a skewer stick, make dots on the gravestone and add RIP with black paint. Then, with the flat end of the skewer, stick it in yellow paint and make a small moon in the distance.
Again, using the skewer stick, paint on a red bloody handprint that has been smeared. Allow everything to dry.
Prepare some more resin and pour a topcoat to seal all the paint. Pop the bubbles with a lighter and allow the resin to cure. Then, you can remove it from the mold.
