It was the stand mount for my tv...I wall mounted it instead and kept it around b/c I knew I would use it again!!!

I made over a dozen p/m skulls with and without jaws this Fall. I used those plastic skulls from spirit as the master. I used pledge furniture polish sprayed over the master as a release. P/M 'ed right over it , no foil or nothing. Built up about 4 layers mabe more around the eyes and nose. When I removed mine I just cut a line behind the jaw all the way over top to the other side. (two pieces) The back of the skull pops right off and the front needed a little finesse as there are a few high spots to go over. I used the handle of a plastic spoon to use as a "shoehorn" to slip over those spots.
Some slight tearing - but no biggie as you have to rejoin the halves anyway.



I saw those other methods with the three cuts and figured that was too much work putting them back together.

To add some "life" to the skeleton I have removed the hands and feet and C-spine and heated them up to make them malleable. photo 3.jpg photo 1.jpg

Edit-after boiling the plastic parts I found them not to be as pliable as I needed them to be....sooo I put them in the oven at 300 and that worked VERY well!!

Got to have a durable and understanding spouse to be this addicted!!

HM-...this poor individual will continue to have no face. I like the absence of it....it lets the mind wander

I started some PM today...was going to use cloth instead of paper...but I just didn't like the way it was turning out....so I went with Viva paper towels photo.jpg
