Handcrafted Skeleton Crown (Plastic & Clay)
I am THRILLED with how my skeleton crown came out! This piece is inspired by the last season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and is the start to my Sabrina cosplay of her coronation outfit. It's important to me that each of my pieces take on different lives, which is why I created this gold skeleton demon for Halloween.
Check out the project gallery below for a shot of the crown in its final form as well as a WIP shot and my references. I used a couple different materials starting with plastic skeleton fingers I cut off of Halloween decorations, created a wire+foam base, attached the fingers with some hot glue and then covered the fingers and base with air dry clay. Final touches were spray painting a metallic gold followed by antiquing with brown wax paint in the cracks and lightly over the whole crown.
Stay tuned for a video on how this was made!
