This is a rolling stone prop for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The “Stone” is painted paper machet on cardboard over a 2×2 frame. It has a 9’ 8” diameter and is 15” thick. Since that won’t fit through the doors, I made it in 4 pie shape pieces that are screwed together on site.

Nice prop, Paul! You did a nice job with the framing and with the paper mache. I did note that Jesus’ exi from the tomb is clearly marked with an “EXIT” sign.

Thanks Red and Don. The “EXIT” worked out very well. For the service we opened the door and dressed it as the Tomb part of the set. The service ended wit a shrouded corpse being placed inside and the stone rolled into place.

The paper machet was a cost cutting compromise. Originally sheets of PS foam insulation was going to be used. I had Half of a gallon of wood glue that had frozen, It was spared from the trash can.

Have your say...
