365 Project #325 Baby Goat

My friend Al gave me a baby goat skull, a goat that had been taken down by a pack of dogs a couple of years previously. It was so cute I decided to do something special, a faux Cloisonné effect. Cloisonné has an iridescent effect so I tried making my own paint from pearlized eyeshadow mixed with ModPodge and water, outlining in medium-body gold paint. The effect is just what I had hoped and I mounted it on a plain black stand. The overall height is 9".
