Here at Killer Paint, there tend to be a lot of skulls and skeletons around the shop. No big surprise. However, there are some skeletal figures in residence that Mike didn’t make or paint…

Catrina (or Calavera Catrina) figurines are a favorite of Mike’s to collect and display in the shop.  They are strongly associated with the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead) celebrations and have become an iconic cultural image. Mike prefers to collect authentic Mexican-crafted pieces. (Most of these figures were acquired from Heart of Mejico.)

Imported dolls can cost more, but each one is hand-crafted and painted, so no two are exactly the same. Each figure has its own quirks and unique appearance.

There are a lot of other interesting and unusual things hanging around the shop. We hope to show you more of the stuff we’ve got here at the Killer Paint shop in the future when we have the chance.

We hope you enjoyed taking a look back at this project. Let us know if there is anything you would like to see us post here in the future!
