Stoney, i'm never likely to b in receipt of these here in the uk, but hell that is PROGRESS

I doff my cap at thee! ...logical move, embellishable, love it!

novelty with inherent design & forethought built in, ...i'm in heaven

I have not carved one yet !

But I would say you would need (2) Clip lights - one High and One Low.

The Tombstone's are Like 3 Foot High.

3 feet high (& rising)!?

Sounds like something I found on the big river might be handy if you don't want to be soldering lots of LED light tape joints,

Spirit movement from in & around the tombstone!? http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-E27- ... .19.YEaSWs

Whilst I love the old howler lights it seems that this sort of item will be more demanding due to the atypical dark stone nature of a tombstone..

Or a simple led 10 Watt aluminium colour wash flood which can be re-purposed to backlight colour areas behind & inside a hollow tombstone with a bit of flap cutting & angling so it provides more coverage in a scene setting.

Like I really need an excuse to buy any more of these..

(The thing that always gets me though is RF interference from naff transformers! ..this generally means I get them for free, ..their fault their problem.
