The Skeleton Pirate Crew took over a month to design and build. Each of the fifteen skulls started with an inflated balloon.  The majority of the forms were created with a combination of papier mache clay and monster mud. Each skull is unique featuring a different design for the eyes, nose and jaw. This project was basically an experiment in using mixed medium and newly developed papier mache clay recipes.


The Pirate project involved creating fifteen skeleton pirate skulls simultaneously in an effort to gauge time and materials involved in “mass production.” The first step involved sketching the fifteen different pirates, this was necessary to plan and keep track of the various accessories. 

The Pirates used quite a few different mediums and papier mache techniques in the building process.
