Cow Skulls

I’m a native Texan and have been drawn to the iconic Texas longhorn for as long as I can remember. A decent part of this blog is dedicated to best practices on how to paint cow skulls.

Cow skull art found me through a flea market in the middle of Texas. I stopped to chat with a vendor selling animal skulls by the hundreds and left with a backpack full of them. The adventure started with learning to clean and sterilize the skulls. From there, I started experimented with a variety of paint and other mediums to create pieces of art unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I have a lot of fun making them and hope you enjoy them as well.

I’m always happy to chat and explore ideas, so don’t be afraid to reach out. I try to respond to all comments within 24 hours to two months.

    I have just came into a lot of cow skulls. I live in Missouri out in the country. i am very interested in the native art. Would love to expierment on one of the skulls. What kind of paint do you recommend? Since I have Cherokee in me I am looking for something I could look at and get ideas. Do you have any suggestions?
    I love your art work. It is so great on the skulls.

      Hey Dottie,

      I like to do a base of spray paint / primer then go over with acrylic. Or you can just do acrylic straight on the bone then finish with a nice finishing gloss / UV protectant. If you are experience with oil, go for it, I just personally don’t think it’s worth it.
