October Inspiration – Skulls

With the Day of The Dead coming up soon, I have been looking around at skulls, specifically sugar skull designs in glass.  I recently bought a skull press by Zooziis and have used it a few times with varying results.  Possibilities for this press include pressing colored glass and then encasing with clear, pressing clear, fuming and encasing, filling the press details with powder or enamels and pressing in another color, and many others.

Skulls can also be formed freehand like these beads by Bonnie of Puddytat Glass:
