I bought this paper mache skull at Michael's and hot glued sequins onto it, then glued the skull to a candle stick. It took me 23 hours. I used two sizes of sequins because I ended up not having enough to finish it with the large ones but it's awesome anyway. I finished the face in one eight hour sitting while watching an mtv count down and the biography channel.

I would have just used the sequins that come on a string, so I'm amazed that you put them on each individually.  Wowza!

Holy skulls!  It's amazing that you did all those sequins individually!  I think I might need a neck and shoulder rub just from reading about your 8-hour session.  This rocks and so do you!

Wow, that's the sort of tedious project that draws attention and looks beautiful because of its simplicity--simple and intricate at the same time. Great job! I love it!
