In all the places i hang out i have talked many times of 'old projects' that i have unfinished or am yet to start. Often i have blamed space as being the cause for this er!, delay. Since i have had a bit of tidy up i can not use that excuse anymore lol. So the other day whilst starting a project for my youngest daughter for her birthday i decided it was time i got to doing some of the older projects i have been putting off as the stages of the birthday project was off drying.
Amongst some of my unfinished projects that i have been putting off countless times many feature human skulls. A 'lot' of skulls in fact i need somewhere between 70 to 100 skulls for all the planned projects. Naturally i have been putting making them off who wouldn't thats a LOT of skulls lol. Amongst those skull related projects are a couple of new grim reapers (see FINISHED PROJECTS down the right hand column) of course but the other projects vary in size & shape. The largest project amongst these will take around 40/60 skulls alone (which will include half & partial skulls too) in it's creation whilst others will take between 4 to 20 skulls each.
The three & a half skulls shown here will be used to create copies of all the skulls i need. Naturally ANY of the projects i have planned would look 'odd' if all the skulls were 'identical' so as i copy from the shown skulls i will make 'deliberate' changes, adjustments to phrase it better to each new skull i make. a missing nose here, slightly more prominant eye ridges there. A half skull here etc.
I have Dragon Skinned these to make them stronger since i will be cutting the copies from them i want them to last long enough during the copying/cutting process. The copied skulls will only be around 4 layers of news print & A4 80gsm white printer paper thick each. But again each once used in it's own respective project will be finished in Dragon Skin to both make it/them harder & a little fire resistant. More on the copying & the projects soon as i do each project over the following months i WILL post them here too.
