Dia de Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday that honors and celebrates those who are no longer living. Calaveras de azucar are colorful decorated sugar skulls that are often displayed during this holiday. In this project you will make a 3D print design of a sugar skull celebrating someone who is special to you. You will be using Tinkercad to create your design.

Step 1: Get Inspiration! What Are Dia De Los Muertos Sugar Skulls?

Before you start to create your design, get inspiration from:

Think about the person whose memory you will honor in your 3D skull creation. What did this person enjoy doing? What did you enjoy doing with this person? What was important to him/her? How might you capture some of these ideas in patterns designs?

Have scratch paper and pencil handy to sketch patterns and ideas down.

<p>Nicely done. Thanks for sharing this!</p>
<p>Thanks! I hope to have more 3D printing lessons up soon. The Alum Rock San Jose library show that resulted from this workshop is coming down tomorrow. Hoping that the local high schools will invest in bringing 3D printing into their programming. The teens had a good time and are excited to take their glow-in-the -dark calaveras home.</p>
