Day of the Dead Skulls
Halloween time is the best time to find skulls, and bones at craft stores. These are paper mache skulls I got at Michaels. First I painted them with white gesso and I am starting to paint them with Decolor Acrylic markers.
I am only using the colors I have on hand so I had to use sharpies for the yellow and red. The Sharpies didn't go on as nice and the white markers looked good at first then started to dissolve the color underneath as seen on HIS forehead.
