This is a super easy craft and so far I have loved the results. My technic is is to give it a good coat across the top and sides. Saturate the eye sockets but not too crazy. Getting the glue and fabric to stay in the eyes sockets is a trick. I used a wet wood end of a paint brush. It seemed to release better for me than my fingers. Truly super easy and fun.
*UV Light required for optimum effect.
Super cheap - cost to make $2-5 dollars depending if you already have a skull around

* you can coat the plastic wrap with petroleum jelly on the outside as a release if you don't want the effect of the plastic wrap. I kinda liked it, made it look more spooky to me.
*** I tried a nylon sheer and that did not work at all. Tulle should work since it's lighter but I would stick with natural fabrics for better results***
* 1/2 white glue for light weight fabrics- 2/3 for heavier fabrics
*1/3 glow in the dark water based paints
* water as needed to thin just a little
