"5 Amigos" Sugar Skull Art
One of my most treasured works, the "5 Amigos." These colorful characters and all their detail have been hand burned into a canvas of pine with a pyrography pen. Each one is individual with varying designs and colors. The backsplash of pine has been concealed with a generous coat of red mahogany while the natural pine remains on the faces. The vibrant sugar skull designs are meticulously painted in around the burnings with acrylic while the whole piece is wrapped in a sustaining layer of gloss finish.
