Flashback Friday is a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.o. Each week I'll be posting an original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3 of the project...
#49: 167. Skull By Numbers
The book Paint By Number was an inspiration and reference for this one. I'd actually made a paint by number image for one of my clients a few years back, so I had an idea about how to go about doing this (at the bottom of the original post I explain the whole process), but I decided to take things one step further and actually disguise the image that you are painting.

You can download a hi-res PDF of it HERE to do it yourself. Please send us a picture of the results!
NOTE: You will have to mix your own colors, use the swatches at the bottom as a guide, but feel free to experiment with different palettes. I recommend acrylics or tempera, but anything opaque will work.
And if you're impatient you can cheat and see the end result HERE.
[UPDATE] This skull has now been added to the Facebook Send-A-Skull application!
