Forest Demon Skull by Koeskull Forest Demon Skull by Koeskull
A painted deer skull, could do more on it but I'm sick of it right now. Yes the antlers were naturally like that, but they look more symmetrical at most angles, just not the one in the picture haha. Took hours and hours.. the word "painstaking" comes to mind. Entered it in the schools art contest and got runner up.

Thanks! I just used acrylic paint, and nothing over it to seal it and it seems fine. Though you probably shouldn't use real cheap kinds, because on another skull I used different acrylic paint and it peeled a bit. Though that skull was very old and porous, and I only painted parts of it. Whereas this one is pretty smooth and I painted it all white before putting the designs on.
I'd like to see what yours looks like when it's done :)

I'll definately send you some links when Im done I am dying to get stuck in, because this is for University do you mind if i reference yours for research? Also one more question, did you use a primer or just the base coat of paint?

Just paint.. I'm pretty amateur with painting though haha. It probably would be better to seal it with something non-glossy, unless you want it glossy.
