A handful of Halloween!
Too soon? Who says skeletons and pumpkin heads belong exclusively to October? Halloweeny stuff is probably our favorite to work on. It's just such a friendly holiday, with just a little touch of creepiness. A chance to take candy from strangers and say thank you. And skeletons don't really seem exclusively Autumnal at all. I mean, everybody is walking around with one in them right this minute.
Inspired by the traditional Dia de los Muertos candies, I did my own version of some sugar skulls this week. They're made of wood, with little paper clay noses. I hadn't tried sculpting paper clay right on wood before, but it worked like a charm!
Hope you're all having a friendly day.
