I think that skull

is on FIRE!

Holy crap! I jump up from my chair and grab a "non-alcoholic" beverage - something that can be hard to do on our patio - and douse the flaming skull.

WTF just happened?

In case you did not know, I am here to educate you with this valuable information - plaster of paris burns! I am sure the wax candle on top helped a bit :D

Hum, that means that all the skulls with candles burning on top of them on my patio are potential ghost rider movie props.

As cool as that sounds, not very safe.

So, husband to the rescue! He and Toph decided to try using our old rubber skull molds to cast concrete! Worked great. I currently have a whole row of cement skulls on my outdoor fireplace.

But the best part are these "experiments". He did not have enough concrete to fill a mold so he made a few faces. I put them in my gravel area under the magnolia tree. They are up all year long, of course ;D

We are going to cast a few more skulls over the next few weeks. I will make a few to giveaway on the blog.

Check back for details.
