Miniature skulls and skull beads are easily made from a variety of modelling materials or fondant icing. The steps which follow will show you how to shape hollow or solid skulls from a range of materials. The skulls can be used for Halloween or as sugar skulls (Calaveras de Azúcar) for Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations, or for jewellery or decorations for dolls house miniature or gaming scenes. Edible skull decorations can be moulded from fondant icing or even marshmallows using the same techniques. The marshmallow skulls are a great, easy project for children.
