Golden Skull Scratchboard

Shona Penny loves creating skulls in her art. She made this "Golden Skull" with a scratchboard and faux gold leaf.

I love the sharp contrast that using basis scratchboard lends itself to. Shona used this contrast well to define the details of the skull, and boarder design. The use of faux gold foil adds a metallic shimmer to the piece, and highlights the facial design. The addition of a sealer helps the overall piece to shimmer.
