Here’s a PeekPosted: October 10, 2011
Hi Everyone! Here’s what you’ll see when you walk in the door at GUILD starting tomorrow morning at 11 am. Yep, those are sugar skulls with amazing flower head pieces–every one is different. Sugar skulls can last for 10-15 years if you store them in a cool and dry place when you’re done displaying. They are a little fragile so it would make sense to keep it in a small box. And this year, we have sugar skulls in a medium and small size. The small ones have magnets on the back. Very clever.
The black catrinas are made by the Perez family from the most well known catrina-making city in Mexico, Capula. Both catrinas are stunning, capturing movement and detail like very few I’ve seen. To your left of this photo is the Zinnia Folk Arts corner, FILLED to the max with tons of skeletons, catrinas, masks, retablos, jewelry and tons more I can’t even remember. Be sure to check it out…the event goes from tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct 11) through Saturday, October 22. Come early for the best selection!
