This is my project for Dia De Los Muertos this year. She is my 6 foot tall paper mache skeleton. I used newspaper/ paper mache to make her body and used Kilz primer/interior house paint to paint her. I was inspired by the art of Jos Guadalupe Posada and the art of the Linares Family.









Thank you for looking!

that is SO cool!!! She has the perfect shape- I knew exactly what she was in the thumbnail (that she was Catrina and not just another Halloween skeleton). Is she part of a Dia de los Muertos celebration?
