painted skull tutorial


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Reeves. All opinions are 100% mine.

My brother in law is an avid hunter and has beautiful trophies throughout his home. His cute wife decorates the largest one for the holidays and I was teasing him that if he gave me one, I would paint it pink. He laughed and promised me on his next trip he would bring something back; alas, he did! So, thanks to Reeves art supplies, I was able to fulfill my end of the deal and prettied this skull right up!

Pretty painted skull, love the boho look made with a paint brush and acrylic paint in no time!

The Reeves packaging is so classy! Show your colors, love the versatile Reeves art supplies! I chose 4 hues of Reeves acrylic paint in the cutest tubes and used a few coordinating paint brushes. Reeves art supplies can turn drab into fab into no time! The flower palette is my favorite, so cute and made painting a breeze. I usually use a paper plate and the colors blend together so using this palette was a treat! Added some Reeves acrylic paint on a sketched boho aztec design and this skull turned into a work of art in just minutes! I chose colors that would coordinate with my house colors… Peach, Yellow Ocher, Phthalo Green, Viridian, and Titanian White of course!

Reeves acrylic paint is so smooth and covers so well! Pretty two-tone skull, brighten it up with a whitewashed acrylic paint in no time at all! After the paint was dry, I sketched a design inspired by this pin with a pencil onto the skull.

  1. Even though I find it a little creepy to have a real animal skull at home this looks just adorable. And the arangement with the flowers is a lovely idea. Do you know where can be found a plastic skull?
