Free skull candy coloring pages
Sugar skulls “calavera” are used mainly during the Day of the Dead. It is mainly found in the form of political or satirical caricatures, it represents a humanoid skull. Usually used as an offering to a dead person or as a gift to a loved one. These practices are more common among Mexicans, who celebrate their dead.
Custom dictates that the calavera rests on a flat surface and shows only the face. When it bears the name of the deceased whom the family watches over, it is intended to feed him on this Day of the Dead. For the individual who makes it, the offering takes on its meaning if he thinks that, on that day, the deceased is wandering on Earth.
Calaveras are most often made from sugarpaste, but can be made with amaranth seeds or chocolate. Their use is more decorative and symbolic than food. The drawings of the calaveras are usually glazes of icing sugar mixed with food coloring, but also papers or glued objects.
Today, industrial production replaces the artisanal, the commercial side of the party means that the molds are produced industrially.
