The lightning flashes through my skull; mine eyeballs ache and ache; my whole beaten brain seems as beheaded, and rolling on some stunning ground.
You've seen the paper mache skulls on another Wicked Blog
Here is the Dollar Tree Plastic version.
Begin by sanding the surface of the skull, just a bit, it will help the paint stick.
Apply a coating of gesso. Wait while it dries, and apply another coat or two.
After it dries draw a design on your skull with pencil.
I wasn't sure just what to do next. So I painted the flowers
with some basic craft acrylic, I really don't like this paint, but I had it.
It's also very cheap and one should just go ahead and use the stuff in your stash!
I was in a rush to finish, wanting immediate gratification and wanting to post for Day 15
so I outlined the images using my black copic marker. I was pleased with the way this worked
not sure of the effect on my marker, but you can change out those tips!
I colored in some of the other flowers with other copic markers. Pretty pleased. But I wouldn't do the
\entire skull with the copics.
So....what about a rubber stamp? I took my tiny spider web from my Michael's stash
and stamped it as centers on the flowers and in some of the spaces.
Ideally I should have painted the entire skull, and applied a coat of modge podge or some other
similar finish, you could use a glossy or matte finish.
