This skull tribal design measures 30” tall by 20” wide. It is made from 1/4” thick MDF with a melamine face on both sides. The skull was painted black and by putting a non skid carpet mat on top and very lightly spraying a mist of silver paint on top you get a carbon fiber look. You do have to go over the silver with a light mist of black to even it all out. Then I finished it with an automotive two part polyurethane to give it the high gloss finish. Hope you like it.

-- Have a great day.
