Skulls and Brushes

This project is waaay out of left field for me.  Although I appreciate Southwestern art and culture,  it's usually not my first go to for inspiration. But!  I found the coolest  silicone mold on Amazon by Shoal Creek Designs & after molding it several times first in clay then resin, I had all these very detailed steer skulls with no idea what to do with them!
(The mold is kind of creepy with those bulging eye sockets!)
Enter a post from a Facebook group asking about altered paintbrushes.  I had never altered one before sooo mold + brush + paint = my beaded, feathery skull creation!
There are some things I would change, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  Sorry I don't have any process photos--My blog didn't exist when I began working on this project!  Below is a close up of the skull and bead detail.  Have you ever altered a paintbrush?

Thanks for taking the time!
