Sugar Skulls are a traditional folk art from Central and Southern Mexico used to celebrate Day of the Dead. Mounds of colorful sugar skulls are sold by vendors in the village open air markets during the week preceding Day of the Dead. Increasing numbers of non-traditional colorful candies such as decorated chocolate skulls and other Halloween candies are now competing with the traditional sugar skulls, which are becoming harder and harder to find in Southern Mexico.
You can make your's out of plaster, we recomend USG Lab plaster for it's fast set up time. Decorate after the plaster is dry (you can put the little guys in a dehydrater) Use Duncan OS acrylic paints and brush on glitters, sequins and googly eyes.
Our new line of chocolate molds can be made with tempered chocolate, candy coating wafers, melted chocolate chips or our traditional granulated sugar skull recipe. Many of our mold designs were inspired by the famous Mexican woodcut artist, Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852 -1913). We hope you enjoy making these sugar skulls for your family, friends, Day-of-the-Dead parties, wedding showers & receptions.
