Virginia The Wolf KickStarter Project

One of the hardest things to achieve in life is to do something that you love and get paid for it. And that’s what I love about Kickstarter Projects – they make the impossible possible. It gives me great joy to share with you a fellow skull enthusiast and SAS artist – Virginia the Wolf. If you were able to come to our art exhibition last year then you would’ve remembered their work!

Virginia the Wolf needs some help and support to get to the next stage in their brand development – they urgently need some studio space so they can carry on creating the beautiful skulls they produce where they take pride in bringing art and science together through hand made ethically sourced bone jewellery and art sculptures.

They will be splitting the money between studio rental and bringing some skull beauty to a variety of UK festivals and markets.

We Skelevex this amazing faceted skull design by Skelevex quite a while ago and it’s back again. This time you can buy one of these little boneheads, called ‘Skelevex Bare Bones.

Milk Jug Skulls

These milk jugs take a mysterious journey into becoming milk jug skulls with a little love and heat. The first tutorial shows you how to convert a milk jug into a skull. The last two videos show how you can go one step further by converting them into scarecrow skulls. The end result looks quite good.

The skull is made from paper/cardboard with a movable jaw. The eye sockets feature pulsating green lights for eyes. This Halloween costume also features massive claws. Oh yeah they be big.
