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):

Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone!  There were fun, but very time consuming and I'm glad they last and last in a sealed container, so I won't have to do it again anytime soon!

I was wondering if you sealed them with anything

Nope.  Either I got lazy or the directions I used didn't mention it.  Thinking about it, I wouldn't want to change the various sheens on the different components which would make sealing it tricky and since I store them in a Rubbermaid container, I'm not worried about pests.
