i push toy skeletons into dough and use that as a mold for plaster castings. (take the toy out first and press his back into a new peice then put the molds together and fill with plaster)

I am a high school teacher looking for ideas on making Calacas. Do you have a pattern for making Calacas? If you do, can you email it to me? Thanks.
