    Before you begin you will need some sugar skull moulds. You can buy these online, I got mine on ebay, or check your local supermarket around Halloween time.

  2. Small 16654

    Tall a ball of polymer clay and push it in to the mould, making sure that it fills the mould completely.

  3. Small 16655

    Push the skull out and leave to air dry.

  4. Small 16656

    When the skulls are dry, paint them with a coat of white paint and leave to dry.

  5. Small 16657

    When the white coat has dried, paint on the rest of the features using bright colours of paint.

  6. Small 16658

    If you want, you can dust them with a coat of shimmering make-up powder to give them the look of sugar.

    When they're all dry, decorate your house with them! Happy Day Of The Dead everyone.
