Large Plaster Skulls
Large plaster skulls are attractive when you don't want to make traditional sugar skulls. Good for young children who don't have the dexterity to operate an icing bag. Also good for ofrenda builders who must leave their altars outside in variable weather where sugar skulls would be getting moist. Artists enjoy a plaster skull when making finer artwork.
Large plaster skulls are usually made with just the face side of a two piece mold; however, advanced crafters can bond both back and fronts together using fast drying epoxy (make sure to "rough up" the mating sides with coarse sand paper to get a good bond). We recommend the Original Large (W3500), Original Medium (W3501) or Oaxaca Medium (W3492). The Oaxacan X-Large (W3480) and Guadalupe (W3485) molds are just pretty big and take a long time to dry, but they can be used.
