Beautiful, hand painted red papier mache Big Eyes skull.

Big Eyes Skull

What's more iconic for Day of the Dead than a big, colorful, spectacular papier mâché sugar skull for your table, living room or ofrenda?  A sugar skull represents a departed soul so the big eyes & joyous design let's you look into the soul while you remember your loved one.

Papier mâché was brought to Mexico by the French in during the reign of the Emperor Maximilian. While Abraham Lincoln was fighting the Civil War, Maximilian was introducing Mexico to everything French. A little town close to Mexico City was the cradle of all papier mâché - Celeya - and remains so today. They made papier mâché masks, toys & dolls for the poorer folks that couldn't afford European imported goods. These popular, colorful folk art pieces spread into homes & festivals in all parts of Mexico, and their durability has made them last throughout the ages - even Diego Rivera had papier mâché filling his painting studio (and Frida Kahlo posed for a photo holding a big sugar skull from her hospital bed).

Papier mâché is a timeless & collected type of traditional folk art and will make a great centerpiece for your Day of the Dead celebration. Each skull is unique. Excellent quality papier mache & very well painted. 11 inches deep x 8 inches wide x 9 inches high. Mexico

A5361 Big Eyes Skull $120 each

Winged Angel T-Shirt

Women's Winged Angel Skeleton Dia de Los Muertos Tee Shirt

Winged angels are a common iconic design for Day of the Dead in Mexico as it represents the soul flying down out of heaven to join their families for the celebration. It's also a design that's used for the children's ofrendas as it can represent a little angeilto. Folk art, floral arrangements, candies and even tombstones use the image of a sugar skull with wings.

Angela & Simone drew this design surrounded with wild marigolds and hope you enjoy wearing this limited edition T-shirt to work, school or Day of the Dead parties.

These are great quality shirts, OK to machine wash & machine dry. The high quality silk-screening looks very  artistic compared to commercial T-shirts. These have a front design, crew neck and fall to the mid-hip. Minimal shrinkage. 100% ring spun cotton.

The Winged Angel t-shirt is a different base shirt than the Bone Dog tee (below). It's softer, more form fitting and runs about a size smaller than the Bone Dog tee which is thicker, denser weave of cotton which softens with wear & washings. So, if you are normally a Medium, order a Large Winged Angel.

Bone Dog T-Shirt

This is a 100% high quality cotton T-shirt, made in Mexico but silk-screened in Seattle by a fine, traditional artisan workshop.

Black Day of the Dead T-shirt with skeleton bone dog snatching cempasuchil flowers as they float from the heavens.

Click for LARGE image

This playful bone dog is trying to snap up the cempasuchil flowers as they float down from the heavens. The pup is detailed in papel picado designs on his bones. The title, El Perro Fiel, or the loyal dog, is written in Loteria style. Angela & a local artist created the design of the papel picado pooch bordered by white bones with flowers in 3 colors: magenta, orange & yellow.

The shirts are heavy cotton, straight sided and fall to the hip and cover the tummy. Crew neck. Shirts come in both Women's & Men's cut shirts; the women's are shorter in length and sleeve. Minimal shrinkage.

Cute Pooch

This papier mache bone dog is going to be your best friend - he's fun, happy and you can pet him or feed him his big bone.... But he's better than a real dog because there's no dog hair on your sofa or slobber on your T-shirt. You can sleep late without fear of a dog licking your face or whining to be let out. You can move your bone dog to the side of your desk to watch you adoringly, put him under your dinner table to sit patiently for table scraps or set him in the window to await your return from work. This dog is everything you could possibly wish for in a pet - no vet bills, no smelly dog food cans and no need for plastic pooper scooper bags! He's a great companion and you can still take him to the dog park as a conversation piece! Unique new piece for any Day of the Dead collector.

18" high x 9" wide x 16" deep with removable bone & curly tail. Excellent strong quality papier mache from a great artist in Guanajuato, Mexico.

Big Eyes Sugar Skull Mold™ -» New for 2017

This 2-piece mold makes 1 extra large sugar skull. This is the largest, most realistic Mexican sugar skull mold we have. It's whimsical with the big eye recesses to decorate and it's a big skull with lots of room to decorate. Carolyn Potter and I had lots of fun making this mold! Big Eyes Sugar Skull Mold from MexicanSugarSkull.com for Day of the Dead Eyes can be accentuated with colored tin foils, colorful Royal Icing, rhinestones and even round cut outs from soup labels. Anything that looks striking. In Mexico, the sugar skull makers use whatever they find to make a sugar skull special.

The reason this mold is so special and has been long requested is because the back of the head is exactly the same size as the front. This means the skull sits up straight and does not recline, which is preferable to some people. For chocolate makers who wanted a big skull to make hollow chocolate sugar skulls, this is perfect. They would still need to clamp the 2 plastic molds together, but it doesn't have a smaller back of the head as the Original Large has. This skull is fun to make and in size, falls between the Original Large & Oaxacan XL mold. It's very important to use our strong CK Products meringue powder and scoop to 1/4" - 1/3" walls before assembly. Please send us photos of your Big Eyes skull decoration and we'll try to post them. 4" wide x 4.5" high x 4.5" thick
