I found a bag of fake flowers at a thrift store and I was certain I would find a use for such useless objects.  After lightly cleaning the flowers, I pulled them apart and glued them to pinbacks.  Then I made some little skulls out of sculpy and painted them with acrylic paint.

My mine problem was finding a glue which would adhere for any period of time.  Oddly enough, tacky glue has worked the best so far.

I lurves them. They're such a cross between girly and punky.
Are you planning on selling them?

I redid them so that now they're all sealed with spray enamal. It makes them look shinier, and a little more like porcelain and less like sculpy.
