My name is Alice Peirce, I'm 25 years old, I live in Mt. airy MD & I love your station! This is my bull skull art! I get the skulls from local farmers who have their steers butchered at Wagners meats. The butcher gives me good steer skulls and I make them brownies and cookies! I clean the skulls myself using a mesacration technique that I have broken down into several different stages over the course of two months. Once the skulls are clean and whitened, its time for paint! I hand paint all my skulls with acrylic, I use semi precious stones and gems, and sometimes even bullet casings to mosiac the eye sockets and cavities in the skull! The horns are sanded and polished, The result is a one of a kind piece of weird art! I hope you like it!!! The photos below show the different stages of cleaning and painting, My friend and I boiling some skulls, and my finished product. I have completed over 12 bull skulls, and also paint coyote skulls, racoons, skunks & beaver skulls. Not sure why how I decided to start doing this, but Its what I love to do! Thankyou for supporting local art! -Al
