Sugar skulls just got a makeover. I cannot seem to get away with making these. My favorite color is the white sugar enamel.
I use the torch because it gives me more control over the sugar stage of the enamel. Sometimes I use a mantra while firing and it goes something like this (after pulling the torch away). Stop...stop...stop...STOP!!!
A lot of people seem to think they are just for Halloween but I wear my sugar skulls year round. It is like a momento mori.
noun: memento mori; plural noun: memento mori
an object serving as a warning or reminder of death, such as a skull.
I am constantly thinking about my own mortality. I guess this is why I make skulls.
What about you?
Are you afraid of skulls?
Just today my mom requested a necklace to accompany her earrings. I am totally on it mom!
Oh just so you can compare. These are how the earlier style looked.
The new style can be found in my shop.
Have a great Wednesday!
