If you’re like me, you’ve also been counting down the days until Halloween. Well, it’s almost here! One of my favorite designs of the year was this Golden Egyptian Mummy.

  4. Paradise Black
  5. Wolfe Black
  6. Graftobian Blood Paste

  8. Always Wicked Sponge

  11. #4 Round Brush

The Application:
