Default upgrading a simple skull prop

Many years ago I had a couple of foam skulls from Michaels so I thought it would look neat to put them on some bamboo rods, add a little great stuff for brain matter and some red paint for blood. We've found a place for these in our haunt almost every year. Decided to give them a new look for future haunts so did some paper mache work on one of them. Will do the other one next but this creeps them up a bit.

Before



After

Nice job, JD! It's very Sytnathotep in style.

Another great transformation! I love the 'drippings' hanging off of the skull....could be left over skin? Or something more sinister? Love the look of them!

I was kind of going for the rotted skin look so glad it gave that impression!

Finished the taller of the two today. Happy with the result and the pair of them will look pretty cool in our display this year.
