bone skul


You may have seen this cool way to dye eggs using onion skins and flowers. First thing I thought was, would this work on a skull? I tried it with a friend today and…I think it didn’t work. The yellow skull on the bottom left is how it turned out. Even though we used red onion skins. I think the main problem is the fact that skulls are not smooth surfaces so we couldn’t wind the hose around around it very tightly, so maybe the flowers didn’t stay in place as well as they could have. Or maybe it has something to do with the difference between the makeup of an eggshell and a bone. I might try this again sometime if I find something that would stick to the skull better and not slip around, like a plant-shaped sticker. 
Anyway, if you were wondering if anyone has tried this technique on skulls, now I have. It’s hard and it didn’t really work.
