Pinstripe Sugar Skull

Micah Vogel sent us this sugar skull that he painted recently. He explains it's done with "one shot enamel on PVC".

I love sugar skulls. This one is different than the traditional ones, which is nice. I like the pinstriping, like in his previously submitted piece. I like the design of the roses and placement. I like the traditional element of the flower petals around the eyes and at the chin, mixed with nautical star for the nose and metallic teeth. The radiating background, really makes the white of the skull pop out more. I'm not familiar with using enamel on PVC. I'm familiar with PVC fabric, vs the hard plastic, so my curiosity has been sparked as to what paint will adhere to the fabric.
