Cow Skull by aprilmdesigns Cow Skull by aprilmdesigns
I was commissioned by a friend to paint his lovely cow skull. He told me to go to town with it, and paint it however I wanted. Because I'm on a Day of the Dead kick, I went the sugar skull route. Painted with acrylics and fake flowers and gems are glued to it. For my first time ever painting a skull, I think it turned out pretty good. He loved it, and that's all that matter. :)

If you're from around the Halifax (Nova Scotia) area, you can find it hanging out at Plan B!

I actually like that it looks handmade, and that all the dots and details aren't perfect. It's really charming. I can understand that your friend was very pleased :)

Haha this is sick! I love the flowers in the eye sockets and the overall sugar skull feel. It looks awesome!

I'll definitely have to pop by Plan B to check it out!
