Paper mache skull

After going to all that effort to make a skeleton mould sized to match my existing skull mould, I'm going to make an entirely new skull for my moulded skeleton.  The reason is that my existing skull is human shaped, and I want to make something that's not human.

I start with a little ball.

Then I add eye sockets, cheekbones and a lower jaw.

And now it's time for my favourite part - soft tissue.  I'm making a partially mummified skeleton, so I'll put a bit of soft tissue on the skull to give it a face.

And there you have it folks; a nice, quick, easy little project you can do in your lunch break.  Now it just needs to be attached to a body and painted.
