In this video, a skull is casted from plaster of Paris and a candle with a dripping effect is added to the casted skull. A hole is drilled into the top to fit a tea light candle with the finished model emulating a dripping candle over a skull. A suitable prop for this time of the year – Halloween, plus a dark piece of decor for all year round.
Part Four – Concrete Skull Painting | Natural Bone Effect.

The undercoat or primed coat is best painted around 24 hours in advance for best results with applying the brown paint and wiping with a cloth for a natural looking affect.
