Hey y'all it's Jade here with a super fun last minute Halloween Project! You will fall in love with the end result, trust me! So let's get started and I will show you how to make your very own Glow in the Dark Sugar Skull!

What you need:

One of my favorite things about the bottles is the super fine tip. It comes in handy especially when you want to add details!

Start by adding a design around the eyes. I like to start in the center and work my way out. Just an extra precaution so we don't mess up our work! Keep in mind to add the same designs twice, on each side of face, stay symmetrical. 

Once you start it will feel like there is a lot of negative space but I assure you before long you will see all of that space filled up! It's like a magic finger snap, hehe!

Let's be real... This is BEAUTIFUL! One thing to remember is that your skulls will look completely different under regular light and under a black light. 

Just a tip: I like to add dots on top of wet paint because it almost buries itself inside of the paint and let's them get married. If you add dots on top of dry paint it will not give you the same look as on top of wet paint. 

I am so pleased at the end result. I am absolutely keeping these up all year long in my studio!

I love how they look under a black light! If you don't have a black light they will still glow in the dark if you place a bright light on them for a minute. 

I had to show you what they look like from the top because the designs are so fabulous. 

I hope you enjoyed this project! Enjoy your Halloween and don't forget to use your Glow in the Dark paint for last minute projects. Some things you can do with it.

  • Write your name on your bag
  • Put lines on the back of your shirt so people see you

These are just a few things you can do with the paint so make sure and have ton's of fun!
