Old cemetery headstone

Here is another old cemetery headstone. The marble is worn away and you can see the smooth varnish has weathered away quite a bit. This is a massive stone and even in the original the name has been rubbed away. I can only image the work and effort it took to make such a tribute only to have the name vanish as the time passed.

In Paint Shop it’s pretty easy to use the Text and Bevel tools to carve your own name into the stone. Apply the text on its own layer, then use a bevel which cuts into the stone to make it look like one picture. It works really well and gives a nice personalized eerie nature to it.
