Sugar Skull Theme for Halloween
When I got the MDF Skull to decorate for Halloween, I thought I needed to spice up the skull a bit, so bringing in a little Mexican theme was on my mind as I like the Sugar Skulls they make, garish in colour and just frighteningly beautiful at the same time.
A little fact on the sugar skull or calavera:
A calavera is a representation of a human skull. The term is most often applied to edible or decorative skulls made (usually by hand) from either sugar or clay which are used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls' Day. The most widely known calaveras are created with cane sugar and are decorated with items such as coloured foil, icing, beads, and feathers
