Slightly Creepy, Slightly Awesome: The DIY Damien Hirst Skull

Damien Hirst is a British artist known for the freak-out factor in his art. He first got famous for encasing huge dead sharks in tanks of formaldehyde, and in recent years combined bling with bereavement in a diamond-encrusted skull worth about $100 million. Now to be an owner of a Hirst work, if you want one, you no longer need to have Bill Gates’ bank account; you can get discount Damien with this DIY kit put together by the artist. The package comes with a plastic skull, glue, tweezers, a paintbrush, instructions, and 8,601 crystals (the same number used in the original work). The whole shebang costs 50 pounds, or about $76, and nightmares in change. [I Artist London via Another Magazine] Keep reading »
