Chris Palmer This past week my local Dollar Tree started putting their Halloween decorations on the shelves, and I grabbed one of their plastic skulls to make a skull-shaped rock terrain piece for Ghost Archipelago.
I began by slicing off part of the lower jaw at an angle, so the skull would sit more upright and less leaned back.
I then hot-glued it to a CD.
I also hot glued a bit of pink foam scrap under the back overhang so it wouldn’t look quite so unbalanced.
I then sprayed it with flat black primer; and when that was dry, I sprayed it with stone texture spray paint.
When the stone texture coat was dry, I drybrushed the skull with various light grays. When the drybrushing was dry, I used a little green stuff, some small twigs, and some spanish moss to make a little bird nest to sit in one of the eye sockets.
I then hot glued various plastic aquarium plants onto the base.
After that, I flocked the base and added some more clump foliage and some grass tufts. Finally, I sprayed it with some Testor’s Dullcote matte spray paint.

I’m very pleased with how this turned out! I’m thinking I may like to make some smaller ones as well.
