Breathtaking colorful Sugar Skulls have long been part of the Mexican culture. Beautifully decorated Sugar Skulls are often used as decorations on graves and altars during Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Dive into the rich history of the sugar skulls tradition alongside artist, Diego Marcial Rios, who overviews its fascinating background before giving a demo on the craft. Learn the ingredients/recipes for creating sugar skulls and application techniques necessary to decorate them. Once you have got the basics down, roll up your sleeves to create and hand paint your own unique, expressive work. Let your imagination go wild while you personalize your own sugar skull.
