Ok, This is my first instructable so please be kind.

this whole thing started with my gf's friends son wanting a Skeletor staff! Thats why its a Ram Head, However this will work for any prop. Im going to try a wolf head next!

Anyway He didin want to pay the price for a real ram skull nor could he find a "GOOD" prop made skeletor staff on ebay. So I took some extra styrofoam and made this!

Step 1: Materials

Here are som of the materials you will need!

Jig, Skill or Hack Saw

Gesso, used to prime artists' canvas, won't dissolve your foam. It's also cheaper than spray primer. :)
That makes complete sence!! Thanks so much!!
Nicely done! Keep up the good work!
There IS a brand of spray paint that will not dissolve styrofoam: DESIGN MASTERS. Created for use by florists, it can be found in craft stores like Michael's, and comes in a nice array of colors and metallics.
The horns are very smooth, impressive, and I liked the way you've used the dissolving effect of the paint to add to the texture of the ram's skull. Well done!
Thanks I apprichate it!! I worked pretty hard on this one! Im thinking of using it as a costume mask next year. Like the head for a wire harness based costume!
Thanks alot. As for scale its 19 inches high. As for the styrosnow it ended up in places I had no idea to could even go. Lol.
That turned out GREAT !!! Its difficult to tell the scale though with only the sawzall blade as reference, just a suggestion.. Styrofoam is fun to work with but cleaning up all the styroSNOW is next to impossible! Thats one reason I try to work outside whenever Im using styrofoam. Bet this earns you a LOT of coolguy points with the gf's main man
