Tools and materials:
Cheap plastic skull
Black latex paint
Step 1: Corpsing the Skull
Paint teeth with white nail polish, also repaint eye and nose sockets with black paint.
Mix one part glue to one part water. Brush a small area on the skull and lay a sheet of toilet paper over it. Gently smooth over using a paint brush. Wrinkles are ok, and look really good.
Make sure to overlap the edges of the toilet paper. Go over the whole skull, but avoid putting toilet paper over the teeth, but go ahead and cover the eyes and nose sockets.
Repeat this process one more time and let dry thoroughly.
Step 2: Painting and Drybrushing
When dry, paint over the toilet paper area with black exterior latex paint. Let dry.
Mix some brown, black and white paint to make a dark gray color. Brush this over the whole skull. If some black shows through, that is ok. It adds depth to the paint job.
Add white to the paint mix and with a very dry brush (wipe excess paint off on a sheet of paper) lightly "dry brush" the skull.
You will notice the wrinkles pop out.
Repeat this with an even lighter coat and even drier brush.
Step 3: Staining and Finishing the Skull
Using a cotton swab or similar cotton tipped stick, add some wood stain to the teeth area and any other areas where the "bone" is exposed. Immediately wipe off with a paper towel.
And you are DONE! Make sure to vary the colors, and other factors to come up with different looks and styles.
