Cow Skull beading

dovesgrandmaJanuary 13, 2009

I have obtain a few nice cow skulls. I have seen them decorated by beading. I would like to know how this is done. At one time someone had mention using beeswax as the base for holding the beads. Would love to have some suggestions. Thanks

The garden junkers use ge silicone II for windows and doors/clear for almost everything. Bone would be porous, so silicone would be good for that reason. Not sure tho, you might want to ask over there at Garden Junk. Seems like a fantastic project. Have fun!

Did anyone ever find out how to do this? I have a skull and want to do this for my daughter for Christmas.

There's a gal on the stained glass & mosaics forum that did a couple skulls ..... they are the most awesome thing I have even seen. Maybe you could do a search or even ask the creator to post a pic. Weldbond is a great glue for seed beads...

I also want to find out the method of using wax to hold the beads on the cow skull. Doesn't the wax dry out? Is the wax permanent? I have been using E6000, but it is very difficult to use with tiny seed beads. Wax seems easier. It must be a secret because I can't find any info on it.

No small feat you've decided to undertake! :) This craft is done using a free form peyote stitch. Time consuming, but beautiful! Good luck with your project! :)

I see this post was started in 2009

But there seems to still be some interest...

So I'm posting a link to some pictures if you'd like to see them. Some are just beautiful.
