Day of the Dead Skulls

For Day of the Dead this year,
I decided to design some fun skulls
to add to our alter at school.
I bought three plastic skulls from the Dollar Tree,
coated them with three coats of Gesso and used
Sharpie and Bic permanent markers to embellish.

It was fun coming up with the different
color schemes and lines, shapes,
and patterns to design each skull.

Each ended up with its own mood and persona. 
I worked on these during class times, and 
students loved to watch as they developed.

You can see more on our Day of the Dead Alter here.
