I spent this morning gilding a raccoon skull.

It came into my life a couple of years ago, given to me as a gift from my landscaper chums, who found it in a garden. I bleached it and applied gold leaf and was pleased.

Obviously, it needed some flowers to adorn it, so I made some red Anemone with sparkly centres (too detailed to see here) and some fancy foliage and nestled it in there nice and cozy.

I feel like this is a return to doing some darker work, which I frankly favour. So.
