I made this for my mother in law. She is really into day of the dead, so as I wonderful surprise I have made her just that. I used regular acrylic paint and some high gloss varnish to give it the shine. I will be giving it to her this weekend. I hope she loves it! *UPDATE* I forgot to mention I used small stamps. The swirls, and the little checkers on the bottom of her dress.
