Use Your Head...Great Idea!!!

Grab your keys and head to the craft store and make a beeline to the Halloween section (which amazingly is already on sale to make room for the Thanksgiving items) and grab all the skulls you can!

There is a wonderful article by Linda Hansen in the October edition of "Doll Crafter & Costuming" magazine (I KNOW I have magazines issues!) page 20, "Use Your Head - Plastic skulls found in craft stores made a great base on which to sculpt a head". DUH!!! I should have thought of that!!!
The article shows you step by step how it's done. And get this! Linda uses beads for the eyes! I think this is a great idea for novice sculptors like me!
I will let you know how it goes!!
Stay Creative!

Very cool idea! Does she recommend air drying clay? I'm thinking the plastic skulls may deform from the heat of polymer clay curing.
