Revamping of a Skull

Before I got sick I was working on something totally different...for me anyway.
Years ago I bought this cow skull from a neighbor who was moving. It's been hanging on my fence in my rural garden area in the backyard for years.
I had just decided I was tired of looking at it and was ready to discard it.
Then I got an idea...yes, very dangerous!
I have been going thru my Treasure Piles trying to use up what I have and not purchasing anything else until they are pretty well down...purging if you must.
I have a ton of beads, along with odds and ends jewelry.
I decided to paint the skull white, it had turned grayish from the elements.
She looked really good after the paint job.
Then I decided to dress her up.
Out came pearls, glass beads, vintage jewelry buttons and whatever else I could find to bring the picture in my head to life.
This is the way she ended up.
Yeah, kinda quirky, but cool.
I didn't want to cover the entire face,
so I left part of it plain.
I wrapped the base of the horns with jute
then went to town embellishing
I like it, it's something different for sure!
Total cost: $0
