Custom Painted Argonaut Resins "Kings of Atlantis" Skulls

 These are three custom painted Kings of Atlantis Skulls cast in resin by Eric of Argonaut Resins
They will be up for sale at the Argo online store: www.argonautresins.bigcartel.com on Friday Feb, 27th 12pmEST
I painted a clear cast skull as a Blue Ringed Octopus.  The openings inside the blue rings allow the light to show through the piece. The red tinted casting is done as the helmet worn by Peter Fonda in Easy Rider, the 1969 film.
The third piece is engraved with scrollwork by hand using a dremel tool with a hammered texture.  The skull is cast with glow-in-the-dark powder.  All three are done in acrylic paint.  I am super pleased with how they turned out.
