Dia de los Muertos

I offer a variety of Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead designs — elaborate customized sugar skull makeup, by appointment, or simpler designs for festivals (which we will still customize for the individual). Contact me to schedule, using the form on the Home page.

So much fun in this Homeschool class, doing personalized Day of the Dead faces, by request:

    Thank you Brenda,
    My granddaughter is only five and you treated her with such gentleness and kindness. She truly enjoyed the whole experience of her face being painted. Your work was so quick and very nice.. I will definately tell family and friends about your beautiful work.
