fake cow skull
Step 1: Stage One.
I first went looking on the web to ding reference photos.you will need them.
Step 2: My Design
using your photos as reference. I drew half the skull on graph paper. so was easy to scale up.
Step 3: Scale Up
I drew squares on coloured paper and for one square on graph paper. 1 x 1 cm I scaled it up to 1 cm = 50 cm.Once I had done that I cut it into 3 or 4 sections then cut them out.
Step 4: Foam
I traced the sections on foam. used the template twice for both sides.
Step 5: Paper Horns
Once I had glued my pieces togeatger. I rolled up newspaper for the horns and glued them to the top.
Step 6: Polyfilla
Once the glue was dry I mixed pollyfilla and the proceded to cover the front and horns. I used a small brush then smoothed out main skull with sand paper once dry
Step 7: Horns.
Once the pollyfilla had dried.I began to paint the horns. I used a light water wash brown
Step 8: Tea
So the skull is not too white a used a wet t bag over all of it which gave it a weathered look.
Step 9: Horns Extra
wrapped the horns in black string to strengthen.
Step 10: Da Da
Added some cracks in fine black marker also a bit of yellow on the teeth. and there you have it.
