Talking Halloween Tombstone

Have a look at this Talking Halloween Tombstone for a cool spooky Halloween idea.

“After putting down the Latex gray base I sprayed the tombstone with American Accent stone effect paint from Home Depot. The above photo was taken before the paint fully dried. After it dried I did loose some movement in the mouth (see video). In the end the use of a latex sheet may have worked out better than the use of a nylon stocking. Over all still not bad!

I hooked Tombie to a laptop and used prerecorded WAV files to make him talk. This allowed him to interact with the Magic Mirror. Kids just loved this! ”
