Artwork & Display
Your skull artwork is unique, and each piece is hand cleaned and finished. Metal finished art is created with a minimum of 7 layers of hand applied and finished layers for a lifetime of enjoyment. There are many display options available for your skull artwork.
All skull artwork pieces have a protective finish, so dusting is all that is necessary. For longhorns, you may want to wipe the horns with a soft micro-fiber cloth lightly soaked in baby oil to give the horns a nice shine.
Metal coatings help preserve the skull and do not cause damage. The process is permanent, so the metal cannot be removed and the skull will be permanently altered.
Yes! Select "Custom Display Request" when you place your order. Describe your display ideas in the order notes. We will contact you to discuss the vision for your display and provide you with a price quote for the custom work.
Skulls are boiled, washed and degreased. Skulls are whitened with a peroxide formula or hand painted.
A standard wall hanger is a wire attached to the back of the skull and a wall hanger similar to a picture hanger. The hanger supports 50 pounds or 100 pounds.
Wall brackets are heavy-duty hangers specifically made for skulls. No wires are placed on your skull artwork and that helps preserve the finishes. The skull is simply placed on the bracket. The bracket also places the skull at an angle for optimal display viewing.
