PostSubject: My first skull corpsing!   Mon Aug 04, 2008 1:46 pm

My roomie bought me a plastic skull similar to this:



It's a slightly different shape, but you get the gist. It's hollow plastic. So I cut out the eye sockets, the nose, and the bottom teeth (I actually cut it so it has fangs).

I got out the trusty white glue and some toilet paper (the cheap kind), and started slapping it on. I covered the whole skull, then dried it with my hair dryer (I'm impatient, what can I say?).

I have some wood varnish from varnishing my spirit board, so I mixed that with a red-umber colour paint. I added some more tissue, some spread out cotton balls, and covered in the varnish/paint mixture. I think it took me a total of a half hour to do the whole skull.

This is the outcome so far:





I plan to paint the inside yellow, and I cut a hole in the back to tape a battery operated tealight inside to light the eyes and mouth. I also need to do some highlights and lowlights for paint.

So far, not so bad.

I plan to do a bunch of these to put around the front and side of our walkway, chained together, on dowels so they stand about 4-5 feet tall. I'll paint the dowels black, and put moss all over them. Some of the corpsed skulls will have hair, as well.

Wow! I would have never thought you could get that, by starting with that plastic skull.

Thanks guys!

It's pretty easy, actually. A bit messy, but it doesn't take long (most time is drying). Smile

It scared me when I walked down the stairs...LOL! It's sitting beside the computer desk, tucked into my knitting basket (it's stick is, anyways) until it's fully dried so I can varnish then weather proof it. Wink

Yep, it gave me a start. So it's doing its job!
