About Skull Painting
This group is dedicated to those wonderfully talented artists who enjoy painting on a canvas of skulls and bones.

How do I join?
This group has an open membership and all are welcome. Just click the join button at the top of the page and you're a member!

What can I submit?
You can submit photos of animal skulls or bones that you have painted. We also accept submissions of carved or otherwise decorated skulls and bones. Skulls used for painting can be real or replicas. Please note that this group is for paintings on skulls and bones, not for paintings of skulls and bones. Those sorts of pieces will be rejected. If you wish to submit a painting of a skull, we suggest Skullmadness or another similar group.

How do I submit?
You must be a member to submit art to the group. There are two ways to submit art. The first is to click she "Contribute Art" icon at the top of this page then select artwork from your gallery. The second is to find a deviation in your gallery, go to the "Featured In" heading on the right hand side and click "Submit to a Group" then choose skull-painting from the options. All submissions are subject to Admin approval. For now, there is no limit on how many pieces members can submit.

Can I submit a blog entry?
As the group grows, we will be happy to allow blog entries from those who wish to share skull painting advice, tips and experiences. Members will be informed when this feature is available.

Our wonderful affiliates, FancyCrafts, are having a summer contest all about learning new crafting techniques and trying something new. You can find more information here… so head over there and check it out!
Since life and personal issues have been eating up all my time recently and I haven't had a chance to look for another artist to feature, I'd like to do something a little different until things settle down for me. If all of the artists in this group could comment here with their favourite piece (of their own work), I will add these to the Featured folder so they will be the first thing new members see when they visit the group!

Hello to our Wonderful Affiliate Group!

Cydney here, from Skull Artists Group...


We are lovin' the few painted skulls that some of you are submitting to our group - one submission placed, and won a prize in our latest skull art contest.

So... we decided that since work from you guys is comin' in, you need your own folder. From now on, when submitting your art to our group, submit your deviations to the folder entitled "Hand Painted Skulls" instead of continuing to submit to the "Traditional" art folder.

Those of you who have already joined our group and submitted to us, we have moved your submissions to the "Hand Painted Skulls" folder already....

Great work in here... we'd love to see more of it, as our members don't get to see much traditional work done on animal skulls.

All the best!

I have never seen painted skulls before... it looks so awesome!
May I ask where I could get a skull (which is good for a beginner like me) and which paint is good to use?
~ thanks C:
