Tired of looking into the same old crackling fire? If you think your fireplace or fire pit needs an update, throwing some fireproof skulls into the pile will definitely liven things up! It may still be summer, but that doesn’t mean we’ve got to wait until fall to let our inner witch or ghoul out! After all, summer isn’t just for lounging around by the pool or by the beach, it’s also for having barbecue parties and having cozy nights in.
These skulls are made by Myard, the leading brand of fireplace parts and accessories in the United States. The California-based brand takes pride in their range of heavy duty, highly detailed and hand painted refractory firelogs, with the skulls being one of their most famous offerings. Aside from their eerily accurate human skull imitation, Myard also offers firelogs in the form of cannon balls, country oak, blazed oak, birch and many more.
Jazz up your summer bonfire with these fireproof skulls
Images of charcoal pieces shaped like human skulls have been causing a stir on social media networks lately. How could they not, when they look so scarily awesome? But the only downside to using skull-shaped charcoal is that it’ll be reduced to ash by the time you extinguish the fire. You’ll need to buy this type of coal in bulk if you want to keep having that special horror effect in your bonfire or fireplace. And that’s neither cost-effective nor environmentally friendly!
On the other hand, Myard’s skulls provides maximum entertainment and novelty while minimizing your environmental impact and saving you money in the long run. This is because the human skull imitations are made with the same materials used for fire-resistant fireplace logs that you’d typically see in modern homes. Additionally, the steel-reinforced skulls also have some lava granules and significant heat refractory elements in them, so you know they can handle the heat without turning to ash or losing its shape!
Mynard offers their fire-resistant skulls in a variety of designs and sizes
To make things more fun, Mynard didn’t just make one standard imitation skull. Their fireproof skulls come in four different designs and two sizes. The collection features a basic skull firelog, one with hollow eyes and another with a split jaw. All designs are available in three colors: white, brown and black. Their white skull isn’t exactly bone white, but a mix of white and grey.
The skull firelogs come in adult-size, which measures 8.5 inches long, 7 inches wide and it weighs approximately 10 pounds. On the other hand, their mini-size skull measures 7 inches long and 5 inches wide and weighs about 6 pounds. And if you want to take things up a notch, you can always opt to get their horned demon skull so you can complete your dark fireplace aesthetic.
A pile of these skulls will make your fireplace (or fire pit) absolutely sinister. However, Mynard only sells them individually, as they are handmade. So if you want to pile a couple of these spooky skulls, you’ll have to order in bulk.
