Photos of all the new skulls

Couldn't help myself...but had to take a shot or two of the new guys waiting to be dressed up!! aka...glazed!!! I completed these guys this a.m.

And the whole group....

So the three medium and 5 small ones I completed today took me from pinching the form, cutting out the eyes, drawing in the teeth, nose, drawing a scene on the head ( butterflies, flowers, scrollings and such) and then writing El Dia de los Muertos... about 4hours total...so about 1/2 hr. per skull. I still have to fire then paint on black copper oxide, wipe it off, apply 4/5 different colored oxides and./or underglazes and spray on clear...then fire again....
