“Scaretaker” & Pumpkin Monster Head Bases

The “Scaretaker” will be a creepy old man standing ominously in my graveyard, leering at passersby. This is just the base of the head/face.

I wrapped a foam skull with aluminum foil then applied the papier mache.

After 3 layers of papier mache I cut the paper and foil off and then put it together with tape and glue. I made the neck at this point too. I then applied 2 more layers of papier mache.
