HOWTO Add a "charred corpse" effect to a plastic skeleton

IMakeProjects has a great tutorial for adding a really grisly "charred corpse" effect to any plastic skeletons you might have lying around the house. They recommend using the charred ribcage as a serving dish for your Hallowe'en party.

First thing to do is apply some black spray paint to the "inside" areas of the skeleton. The nooks and crannies that should be dark but that we don't want to have to try to paint by hand later.

Some good places to paint black are:

* Eye sockets
* Joints
* Inside of rib cage
* Along the spine
