Morbid Kitsch

Not to have a Milan Kundera moment but I really really love kitsch sometimes. I mean, if everyone can own a piece of Jesus' blood cloth we would all be saved, right?

Damien Hirst's For the Love of God is a platinum cast skull covered in over 8,000 diamonds. It cost £14 million to produce and sold for £100 million.

In the spirit of true kitsch, now you can make and own your own. Encouraged to enjoy a piece of art that´s as entirely individual as you are yourself , the kit comes with a plastic skull, 8,000 crystals and all the glue you'll ever need. A true steal at only £50.

Or you can make your version of Marc Quinn's Self, using your own blood of course. The kit comes with PVC blood bag, alginate, a silicon swimming hat and multiple bandages. Needles not included. £20

Also available, a Banksy stencil kit for £10.

Free the artist within you.
