Tiny Skulls and otherwise

Mefi’s komara has been sculpting tiny skulls and leaving them out in public as free art for people to find and claim. [via mefi projects]
In November of last year I thought, "It's time to start a new hobby" and I landed on sculpting with polymer clay. I finished my first tutorial, a human head, and as a celebration project I made a goofy little skull. A friend said, "If you make another one can I have it?" and I thought, "Why would I ever make more than one?"
Fast forward to today, seven months later, where making skulls is all I think about. I make one or two every few days. As I go out to do things here in New Orleans I hide them in various places and post hints on my Instagram and / or my Twitter account. It's become a strange and unexpected success, with the last several pieces each having been snatched up in under half an hour.
