i have developed something of an obcession with the day of the dead, specifically sugar skulls. this last month or so i dedicated some time to doing some dia de los muertos crafting. here goes:
first, i went to the local goodwill and picked up these drab yet lovely owls, surely once part of some awesome old lady's owl collection:
they both got a solid coat of black, then white bases before all the feathers could be painted. i am quite pleased with them and trying to find homes for them.
and then i got some paper mache skulls from the craft store and they got a makeover:

thanks for looking!
