Step 1: Things youll need
a skull (hopefully fake :p) that you wont need for anything else.
aluminum foil ( lots of it)
1 popsickle stick
gorilla glue ( i find it works best but you don't need to use it)
old phone book
exacto blade or something good for cutting the material your skull is made out of
i bit of toilet paper
drill or nails for small hole
black paint (spray paint)
dry brush and biege paint
your choice of lights any color
also i just posted this on my site and please vote for me to win the ipad with the gorilla glue challenge my life is getting really busy and it would help so much.
Step 2: Foiling the skull
I covered the skull in aluminum foil, taping the edges with some packing tape, and smoothing the whole thing down with a popsicle stick.� I only worked with the front half of the skull for now.� This part of the project must be done in two stages
Step 3: Starting the mache
Then I went to work with the mache'. I use a mixture of 2 parts glue and one part water, with a little cornstarch, and for this project I recycled a phone book! To make coverage even, I like to alternate between white and yellow pages so I know where I've already covered when I have "help" from my little assistant. I repeated the process with the back side of the skull after I removed the front part. I believe I used 4 layers of mache' on each half. So if you dont understand how to make the mache paste here it is. First take a big bowl that can hold some water and wont spill. Next empty your gorilla glue into a cheap mesureing cup. Depending on how much paste you want or will use will be you should make the paste like this. 2 parts glue i part water. Example: you want one cup of paste, so you take 2/3 of a cup of glue and add 1/3 water. then ALWAYS STIR THE GLUE, this is very important.
