Today, of course, is el Día de los Muertos, and to celebrate the occasion, I painted up these papier maché masks.
I purchased them blank and pre-formed from the craft store in the midst of all their Halloween to-do. I had designs on them becoming bright and floral ofrenda decor from the moment I laid eyes on them. A little craft paint and some time later, and there they were. I think of the orange one as being male, and the pink one as female, and I especially likes that somehow, the same papier maché mold warped into two completely different skull types.
Hope you like them as much as I do.
I guess Halloween and Day of the Dead make for a two post kinda day, huh?
