[BONUS] 374. Snow (Day) Skull (with DudeCraft)



So of course the day after I post my first ever snow skull, it snows nearly a foot in my hometown! Not only is this an incredibly rare thing, but my friend Paul from DudeCraft had driven up from North Carolina on Friday for the express purpose of us doing a skull/craft project together. We had secured a location and had an idea worked out, but then looking out the window this morning realized there was no way we were going anywhere. We scrapped our original plans and decided we needed to do something with the pristine snow that covered my back yard. The end result is around 4 feet tall and took a good chunk of the day to make.

A hard day's work...



Paul's stuck in Richmond for the rest of the weekend, so who knows what else we'll do. The original project is not entirely forgotten, though it may have to wait for a less snowy month to be completed.

Don't forget to check out Paul's excellent blog DudeCraft!

UPDATE: Get Paul's version of the story, with even more process pix HERE.

Nothing says "Cool ass people live here" like a 4 ft. snow skull in your yard. Of course Paul wouldn't let a day go by without creating something. Dudecraft is a great blog. Great work for both of you!
