The materials used in this project are mostly, if not all, household items, making this project an affordable one (which helps if you accidentally mess a step up).
Step 1: Gather your Materials
For the tombstones' base, you'll need:
*A number of pizza boxes (mine were around 16 inches x 16 x 2, but any boxes could work)
*Lots of old newspapers
*Flour and water in equal parts
*A bowl and a spoon
*Something solid and heavy to place inside the boxes for stability, like wood blocks or craft foam.
For the homemade salty play dough, you need:
*Cream of tartar (4 tablespoons)
*Flour (2 cups)
*Salt (1 cup)
*Water (2 cups)
*Vegetable Oil (or a similar oil) (2 tablespoons)
*A large saucepan or a dutch oven
*A large mixing bowl
*A whisk and a sturdy wooden spoon
*Measuring cups and spoons
And for the finish you'll need:
*Spray paint (the base stone color)
*Acrylic paint (for the details)
*Usual painting supplies (Brushes, water, towels, paper plates or palates, etc.)
*A wooden stake (for setting the stone in place)
It looks like an excessive list, but it's worth it in the end.
