|Sugar skull nails on Finger Paints Paper Mache, sun|
I originally intended to do sugar skull nails for the actual Dia de los Muertos on November 2. Unfortunately, I ended up being too busy to do a skull mani for that day like I intended. However, when I saw that the prompt for the 3rd day of the Lazy Challenge was dots, I immediately knew I could do dotted sugar skulls. I started with a base of Finger Paints Paper Mache and then used various dotting tools to create all the dots in the look. I also used the skinniest of the dotting tools to make all of the lines involved.

That´s all for now. I´m off to try my hand at marbling. Wish me luck, I need as much of it as I can get!
