Begin by working the clay in your hands to get it nice and smooth and workable. This is pretty easy with this medium, but I still like to do it to avoid creases and cracks while I work. Form the clay into a ball, flatten it and then pinch the bottom a bit to form a skull-like shape. Use your fingers to press eye holes and tools to add a slit at the mouth and an impression for the nasal cavity, as well.
All that to dry thoroughly. This will take at least 24 hours, maybe longer depending on your climate if yours is as thick as mine.
Once it is dry paint the skull with white gesso. Allow to dry.
Darken black areas with a marker before adding the glitter.
Color by color, use a liquid glue with lose glitter and or glitter glues to add color and decorative elements to the skull. Allow to dry completely.
You can make your skull into an ornament by adding a hanging wire or ribbon, a magnet, or, if you are brave, perhaps even a pendant (although, mine is kind of large for that! HA!). Have a wonderful day!
