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!
