I am fairly new to both polymer clay and jewelry making, but I thought I would try making some cameos using silicone molds I bought on Etsy.  They seemed to be missing a little something, so I painted them to somewhat resemble sugar skulls, and even added a hint of glitter to the hair of one Smiley  I have to practice painting on something so tiny, but I am happy with the first try.  Any Advice on what kind of paint to use is appreciated, all I had lying around were citadel paints I use for miniatures!

Those are fantastic - and give me a great idea for one of my dear friends, who happens to love all things associated with Dia de Los Muertos. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks so much for the advice!  I was using acrylic, so I will have a look into enamel.

What a lovely twist on the classic cameo. I especially like the glitter you used on one of them.  Great job! Cheesy
