This is a Day of the Dead Sugar Skull, and it is absolutely beautiful!
It is made from glow in the dark polymer clay, and has been painted with bright coloured and much detailed designs. It is one of a kind, and has a hole that runs horizontally through the skulls head.
It has been triple glazed for protection and shine, and is a perfect focal bead for a necklace full of bright coloured beads. Dia De Los Meurtos is coming soon on the first and second of November, so let me know if you would like one! Each skull is painted different, and has been painted with love and a lot of time and patience.
Though many of my previous pieces have black paint on them, my sugar skulls are the first set of polymer clay creations where paint is used in a more precise manner. These are limited edition that were made solely for a local day of the dead fest. Once they are gone, they won't reappear again until next year... if at all. There are currently 3 available.
To be, or not to be....'cause quite frankly, I'm managing to do both at the same time.
As soon as I realized I was going to get Mai in the mail, I just KNEW I had to take a photo like this! XD Yes that is a real opossum skull she is holding. I wish I could have taken a full body picture of her, but sadly she couldn't stand up by herself with the extra weight of the skull in her hand. I'm holding her up just out of the camera's sight. She WAS able to hold herself up though with just her back legs and tail, so that was impressive (picture of that coming up next).
Hope you all find this as funny as I did XD
Oh, and yes, Mai is a poseable opossum soft mount made by *LilMissDoeEyes.
Yes, I have a problem with sugar skulls and I need professional help. Well, I had to mess with clay and wood to make this crazy box and the little sugar skulls (all hand-made, hand- painted) hope you like it.
This is one of the best Halloween costumes I've seen yet! This little Slouchy came through the portal in my closet excited to trick or treat. He had his little baggie held up and he looked up at me with expectant eyes. I thought it was so cute, I couldn't help myself. I plopped a little toffee candy into his bag. I think he's afraid of getting the toffee stuck in his costume because he just keeps licking at it... he's been working on that same piece for the past day and a half...
This little cutie stands about 9 inches tall. He's also very soft and cuddly. However, it's recommended that children under the age of 3 not cuddle this little one (shiny Slouchy eyes could be mistaken for candy)!
Also, Slouchies, to my knowledge at least, don't have a specific gender. Any time I call them a "he" or a "she' is simply to acknowledge feminine or masculine characteristics and to make things easier for everyone. If you choose to adopt a Slouchy, remember that they are neither male nor female and I'm sure they would be tickled pink with any accessories, gender specific or not, that you would like to provide them.
