Skulls for the Library

I got a distress call yesterday...
 skulls were needed for my friends up coming library project...
 could I help!
 As you can see I got to work.
 Smooth as a babies bottom, well not really but close enough.
 For this project I used an entire loaf of bread.
 Here I'm beginning my skull shape.
 These wooden balls are perfect for the eye sockets!
 I found my pinky nail made a great nose space.
 So far so good...
 just need to shape the jaw and teeth area.
I used some reference but as you can see they all look a bit different.

white bread with crusts removed
white glue(not school glue)

my glue was thick so I added a little water to it
adjust ingredients for dryness/stickiness
