Halloween celebrations (27 Oct – 2 Nov 2012) have a Mexican Day of the Dead theme this year. We asked expert facepainter Nicola Shilson of http://www.lucid-arts.co.uk to create a sugar skull face, a symbol that is central to the traditional Mexican celebration.

Nicola will be offering various other Halloween-themed face paint designs at the Eden Project on 30 and 31 October, in preparation for the Little Monsters’ Ball disco.
