Question Zombie Tank Tombstone/Gravestone?

Zombie Tank

So on my Zombie Tank forum, when I was looking for tank size. Someone posted about Clear Coating Halloween Decorations for Aquarium use. I am wondering how would I go about that? I read Krylon Spray Paint could be used, but with lots of coats and lots of drying time. Okay that isn't a problem. Advice? Tips?

I would not use Krylon inside the tank. A clear potable epoxy sealent would work using a paint brush.

I would just get some small pieces of granite and have them cut or cut them myself to resemble gravestones. Lettering would be more difficult if you want to go that far in detail.

I have a rock. It looks very similar to a gravestone.

I may just do what I originally planned and just look for rocks.

If it is plastic Krylon Fusion would work just fine.

You know, I'd offer to make some for you, because this sort of thing is right up my alley... problem is, I may or may not have time- I'm mentoring a student right now and I have some orders and co-ops coming up. But if you want to take a chance on me I *might* have time to make up a few while my student is working and I'm killing time in the studio. These would be made out of stoneware, glazed or unglazed. Shoot me a PM if you're interested. I'll need to know scale, style, etc.
