[Flashback Friday] 5.43 - 318. Crayon Skull

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Tatman, Citizen Agent, and myself, Azurafae are taking turns reflecting on 17 of our personal favorite skulls from the previous four years of postings. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

318. Crayon Skull

About this time two years ago, I was asked to be part of the Skull-A-Day team. I excitedly made a long list of projects to do. Since I didn't become familiar with Skull-A-Day until the end of it's 2nd year, I hadn't seen all of Noah's Skulls. Several on my list, he had already done beautifully, so I haven't done them in addition. This is one of my favorite ideas that he had already done. Why was it my favorite? Because who doesn't like melting things! I probably would have put mine in my oven and come out with a pool of wax that didn't resemble a skull...because I won't risk my iron. Also, I love the beautiful blending of colors where they melted together. Makes me want to break out my crayons (yes, I have my own large box of crayons!) and blend the colors together on paper.

 **Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the 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 3.0, all 52 can be found here. During year 4.0 the editors had their chance to countdown their favorites Azurafae HERE, Citizen Agent HERE, and Tatman HERE.
