Sugar skulls are a common symbol of Dia De Los Muertos celebrated in Mexico right after the American Halloween and during the beginning of November. It's a holiday dedicated to honoring deceased loved ones. The colorful skulls are usually made out of sugar or chocolate and inscribed with the name of the gift recipient on the forehead.
My sugar skulls are not edible as delicious as they may look. This paper mache skull measures approx 8.5" x 5 and is painted with great detail then coated with a UV gloss varnish and sprinkled with "sugar" glitter to make it glisten like a real sugar skull. There is a loop at the top (not shown) so that this may be hung on the wall or I can add holes and ribbon to make it into a mask if you'd like at no charge. Although it is a mask, this is not full size and really meant for decoration only.
I can also take custom colors. Just convo me and we'll talk.
Thanks for looking!
