Halloween Décor

The materials
Adding glass beads for eyes
and forming nose
 I spotted these cool foam skulls in Michaels from their Celebrate It! Halloween collection. I thought they would be the perfect base for sculpting - after all they are already the proper foundation for a head.
Starting sculpting by adding
clay around form
Finished with sculpting

Sealed with gesso, then antiqued
with wash of brown acrylic paint

Glass jar that I've had for years
from Michaels. I used a rust
patina on it to age. Added dried
lichen moss.
                  2-step crackle medium added &
                    antiqued with black. Eyes painted.
                         Glaze added to lips and eyes
Finished Head-in-Jar
