Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky dreamed up a Halloween DIY to die for! This Spooky Skull will be a fright on your mantle’s ghoulish gallery. The eerie bonus? It’ll thrill your wicked guests…right down to the bone.
- Plastic or Foam Skull
- Snowflake Metallic Paint
- Black Pearl Metallic Paint
- Furniture & Cabinetry Glazing Cream
- Coffee Bean Glazing Cream Color
- Frosting Bag and Small Plain Tip
- Black Glitter
- Brushes, Stir Sticks, Rags, and a Pencil
Brush on an appropriate acrylic bonding primer for your skull’s surface and let dry. Brush on two coats of Snowflake Metallic Paint for opaque coverage. Let dry.
Use small brushes to add outline areas of Black Pearl Metallic Paint.
Use a pencil to mark where you’d want the textured dots to appear, creating any pattern you’d like. Fill a frosting bag with Shimmerstone, close it up tight and then create small raised dots over your pencil patterns. Let dry overnight.
Mix a custom glaze of approximately 1:1 Cofee Bean Glazing Cream Color to Furniture & Cabinetry Glazing Cream. Brush on and then dab off with a rag until you like the look.
Use a small brush with 100% Coffee Bean to add accents and drips. Let dry overnight.
Brush another coat of Black Pearl Metallic Paint inside the eyes and nose area – do not let dry. Sprinkle black glitter on these areas and let them dry.
