So, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I love deer! Even though dolphins are technically my favorite animals, deer hold a special place in my heart. I view them as my totem animal, so imagine my surprise while perusing the aisles of Goodwill and spotting this. Oh, and when I say surprise I mean "um, that's interesting".
For $1.99 though I couldn't pass this mama and her baby up. The bones of this figurine are great, the colors? Eh, not so much. But no fear! There's nothing a little spray paint can't fix.
First I made sure to wipe it down, then I primed it using Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer spray paint. After letting that dry for a while (maybe an hour or so) I used Valspar Metallic Gold spray paint. I cannot say enough good things about this spray paint. One use and I was ready to paint everything gold (and I'm more of a silver loving girl)! Seriously, that stuff is amazing! Then after letting that dry for another hour I was left with this new lovely.
Isn't it beautiful? I love how the gold brought out more of the details in the deer. Their eyes and nose, you can actually see them now!
So that's my little secret, I'm madly in love with deer and gold spray paint.
