The beginnings of my skull. The eyes and teeth have colored foil in them.
The beginnings of Matthew's skull. Note his elaborate use of colors. Most of the decorations on this one are made of sugar icing.

My skull: I'm adding the finishing touches here.
And here is my finished product. Notice it has a cross made out of foil in the forehead. I also put my brother's name, Robert, in the back of the skull to honor him on the Day of the Dead.Here is Elaine's finished skull. I really like her use of color here. I think Martha Stewart would be very impressed!
And finally, here is Matthew's skull. His was the most elaborately decorated, I think. Notice the Celtic Cross across the forehead. Matthew put an "M" and "B" in the back of the skull to honor and remember his grandmother, Marguerite Burns.
