Pretty simple actually. I painted the whole skull white(which probably could be skipped) let it dry, applied liquid latex (I have Rd40? from another project) all over the skull, then take the cheap halloween spider webs and lace it all over for that sinew look, latex again to build up areas of interest,let it dry then cover the skull in your choice of wood stain. The wood stain took about a week to totally dry, then I used acrylic paints and did all the highlighting of the skull and darkened the eye scokets.
On the next skull i will be adding paper towels or toilet paper for the old dreid up skin look.

The really cool thing about common mistakes is they can bring about a really cool effect. The spider webs I used had the potential to look very crappy but the results were awesome. The only thing I can recomend is to let every step dry completely. Wear gloves,the spider webs are a pain in the but to work with but if you prep about a 12"x12" sheet and put it to the side it'll help. The latex I used did not ship well and is very sludge like so it dreid really quickly, so prep work is important along with paitence. Which I have none so this was a stepping stone for me in that aspect
Thanks
