Sugar Skull Colouring Freebie

Inside: Free sugar skull colouring page

I have some new sugar skulls clip art to show you.

I’ve been meaning to make these beauties for over a year!

I just love all the different variations you can see online now.

The first time I saw a sugar skull I have to admit it kind of creeped me out. But the more I really looked at them and started to appreciate the colours and artistry, the more I started to love them.

As I’m sure you already know, sugar skulls are part of the Day of the Dead Mexican holiday (when deceased family members are honoured).

I did a little research and learned that the sugar skulls (calaveras) are either decorative and made of clay, or edible and made out of sugar. The calaveras made out of sugar are decorated with coloured icing, beads, foil and feathers! Both types of skulls are made for children or for altar offerings.

If you do a quick google search you can find tons of sugar skull recipes!

But if you’re like me, and not so much into cooking, then you can buy the digital ones and print them out:)

In any case, I hope you like my version of the sugar skulls.

If you decide to purchase you’ll receive 12 images in all (8 by 10 inches). Nine of them are coloured and three are black and white. There are three styles each done in three different colour palettes.

Thank you for stopping by!

PS I have a free colouring sheet for you. This comes from the clip art set. Just click the image to grab.
