I got special permission to make my own skull for TIOT and it is a fall gift to ME! Thanks Susana!!!
Crafters' Workshop stencils, a pencil (and a great big pink eraser for the do overs) to create some guidelines for the designs to decorate the skull.
Viva Decor Glitter Liners and Pearl Liners I have from SCACD I began to select which color went where and go over the designs. Because I have a tendency to put fingers in to anything that needs to dry, I did a small portion at a time. Usually I wouldn't figure out that would be the preferred method until AFTER I had ruined some portion of it so bonus points for me!
Viva Decor in red (a problem soon to be remedied) I decided to use silver on the teeth. Most of the images I have seen for Sugar Skulls have the mouth outlined and the teeth defined. However, once I saw it this way, it looked so much like braces ,or a mouth stapled shut (now Moms, don't tell me there aren't days you dreamed about being able to do that) I decided to just leave it. One of the very best things about this is the dimension from the Viva Decor. Without that aspect this would not be nearly as cool. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE VIVA DECOR!
