'08 Halloween #33: Lazy Tip of the Week
My cemetery is starting to come together. I've made more rusted, crumbling faux wrought iron fence pieces to expand on the ones I made last year. I decided to punch them up a bit with some ornate finials. I didn't have anything pre made in numerous supply I could just add. I really didn't want to spend hours custom making each one either. Fast and cheap is what I wanted. I did find in the stash...ping pong balls and lots of 'em. Accumulated over the years to use as eyes for my zombies. I stuck them on. Capped with a fast cut foam core point. Painted and moved along. They're really sloppy but (and maybe I'm just convincing myself) the "sloppyness" actually works for the decayed look of the fence.
