Day of the Dead Paperclay Skulls

I new to using Paperclay so my process was simple. The hard part was deciding what to put the skulls on!

Start with a dollar store skull ice tray, paper clay and sharpie markers and paint pens.

Follow directions on the Paperclay package and press prepared clay into the skull mold.
I let mine sit a few days because I was occupied with other projects, but overnight would have worked.
Paint the skulls with base coat of acrylic craft paint, let dry, then embellish with sugar skull designs using a mix of Sharpie markers, paint pens and Stained fabric markers. The Stained markers have a nice brush tip. A white paint pen is needed for the teeth unless you have real steady hands.... these are small!!
