Lately I've been learning resin casting, and for my first cast I needed some sort of small thing to cast, that wasn't too challenging, but also something I'd want to have myself. Tick (the bird skull my mom found under her porch a while back) would make a neat pendant, but I was terrified of casting the actual skull, so I ended up making a Sculpey replica of the skull and casting that. (There are a few parts I had to thicken due to how easy it would be to break, bird bones are so fragile x_X; ) These are the casts I ended with, painted more realistically, as if it was a skull found while on an adventure in the forest
These were for sale at RMFC and are still for sale at a local bead store!
