It's all my fault. I bought a "dollar bag" of little plastic skulls at the local Dollar Tree the other day, and gifted several of the Boneheads to Mitzi. One thing led to another, and now we have her dining table covered with paints and glitter and beads and flowers, and spend way too many of our waking hours on the Bonehead Project. I had no idea we'd get this carried away, but there's no point in resisting. This little obsession needs to be followed to its natural end, unless of course its only the beginning of something we're not yet aware of. I'm going with my gut these days. If it seems silly and creative and fun, it's probably a good idea.
So here are the pics so far. The skulls are about golfball size, and come nine in a bag. Now who wouldn't buy that for a buck?
Since Mitzi is a painter, and she's painted Weird Objects before, she knew we needed to spray them with primer. She also had skewers handy, so now we have all these little heads-on-a-stick.
Here's Mitzi at her table full of magical art supplies. We had to make another paint run yesterday. More colors, more colors!
And here's what we have so far. They aren't finished yet, and there are more to paint. We also bought little dolls and ripped their heads off. The heads will be painted too, and their bodies will be attached to some of the skulls. Ack! I love this!
This is the Bonehead Team - me, Mitzi, and Serena, all happily embellishing cheap blobs of plastic. Oh yes, life is good here in Ashland.
