Little Dead Skulls

Teresa Houghmaster of Little Dead Things, in Memphis TN creates these wax skull candles, She creates them using some techniques learned while making zombie lawn art with friends, and some learned after she started concentrating on making only the candles.

This is the time of year where I see lots of skull candles, for Halloween. They are normally mass made, and lacking the special details that hand made candles offer. This highly detailed skull candle shows a great level of craftsmanship from years of study. Candles like this one are too beautiful to burn. Instead, I consider them wax sculptures. You can see more of Teresa's work on her Facebook and in her Etsy shop.
