1. Plain skull 

 2. Painted with Pebo metallic magenta acrylic paint
 3. Cream,okra acrylic paint mixed with Croma Crackle , applied thickly
then left to dry for 3 days.

4.Flowers leaves and liquid pearls applied
to resemble Day of the Dead Mexican skull

to ensure that everything stays and the crackle does not crack off I added a layer of  Slap it On from Indigo Blu.
