Cute and funny!  When I scrolled down the the image of the back, I was glad it wasn't named Trotsy!
3962  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Sugar Skulls (7 Images) on: October 14, 2007 01:16:21 PM
I was looking around the Halloween section this morning and saw black and white photo's request for help with Sugar Skulls (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201873.0) and realized that I hadn't gotten mine out from last year and also hadn't posted them.  I made a hundred or so in two sizes for a Craft Night I hosted last October.  We decorated them with icing, sequins, rhinestones, beads, charms, trim scraps and other various things from our supply stashes.  It's a great way to get rid of stuff!  I know I used things I didn't even like before I stuck 'em on a sugar skull.

The medium-sized skulls (plus a favorite):

And the little ones (with 2 faves):

I made A LOT of sugar skulls last year for a 6 person craft night and was really lucky that I had very few mishaps.  The ones I decorated last year are still in great shape as the are left over skulls that no one decorated.  My guess is one or more of these 3 things.

1. Your mixture is too wet
2. maybe you're not packing tight enough
3. You're not releasing them immediately from the mould.

I bought my moulds here and followed these directions to the letter for 2-3 batches.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge, it looks really gross.  In a good way.  I won't be needing this information this year (at least not for Halloween), but I know I'll use it someday.  Bookmarked!

Really cute!  I love when people decorate their own everyday items.  It makes a humdrum act (like putting a sun shield in your windshield) a little fun.  Thanks for sharing!

SO ADORABLE!  The clothes are darn cute, too!  She has got to be most stylishly dressed girl on the block/in the neighborhood.  She's got some sweet model poses, too!

Great idea!  They also make a wood moulding (yeah, I like the old-fashioned spelling because it doesn't also mean "growing fungus") that is called picture rail or picture moulding.  They used to put it up by the ceiling (where a crown moulding would go) so you could avoid putting holes in plaster walls.  It has a rounded top that accepts a special hook for hanging wires on that hold pictures and can usually find it at home centers and lumber yards/hardware stores.  The little 1942 house I bought last year has some in a couple rooms and I love it.  I want to add it to a few rooms, as well.  Here is a link with photos and info of each the parts.
