Magical, witchy, gothy piece for fun and cool friends. I believe this is a possum skull, but can't be 100% on animal ID as it came in a big mixed up box of bones.I painted it with a million coats of shiny, black enamel paint. This paint has a subtle green shimmer/sheen reflect quality in it. Then I sculpted the crystal crown. I used one large piece of candle quartz for the center, then surrounded it with tons of clear quartz points. Quite the heavy crown for such a little skull.
Side bar, but do you know how hard it is to get all the dirt, iron, and other discoloration out of candle quartz? To make it perfectly clean and clear and unblemished like the one you see here? Well, it took about 4 different chemical soaks, a variety of power tools, and about a month of work to get the crystal as pristine as the one you see here.I will probably not work with candle quartz again in the future, unless I leave it in its natural state. The snake I crafted using a mold. Attached two tiny red rhinestones for eyes. Then coated the whole thing with a thick coat of resin, for stability and shine. The lower jaw is not attached to the upper. But they fit together perfectly like puzzle pieces. The skull is complete with all it's teeth, which are natural and unpainted. And the skull comes displayed on a beautiful labradorite plate. The labradorite beautifully compliments the subtle green tones of the skull. The skull is fairly small.
Just a little over 4" long and 2.5" wide at the widest part. From bottom of lower jaw to top of highest crystal is 5. The super flashy labradorite plate is 4.25 in diameter and a quarter inch thick. It's coated black on the underside so you can see all the pretty colors on top. He had no use for the bones.
