Gold Spray Paint



I am so excited to be posting back after a long time. And I can't wait to introduce my new DIY best friend with you. Meet the best ever golden spray paint.  

                                              
I love elephants and so when I spotted this 3 elephant showpiece, I brought it on a whim. Fast forward a few years later and I was still struggling to find a perfect spot to display this showpiece. The black and the rustic silver colored elephants did not go with anything in my house. So I decided it was the time to spruce up these elephants and add some glam. I had never sprayed painted anything before and I thought there would be no better time then this to give spray painting a try. After debating between white and gold spray paint, I decided to go all out and brought the gold spray paint. I used the Rust-oleum Metallic spray paint in gold. 


I started off by cleaning the showpiece with a swiffer duster and wiping it down with alcohol swab.


I went outside on my patio and laid a flat cardboard box to protect the floor. And then started shaking the heck out of the spray bottle. This is the most important step for the best result. The Key is to start spraying from side to side with a thin even coat and be sure to spray 6-8 inches away from the surface. Keep on adding the thin layers till you like how it looks. I ended up with 4 thin layers making sure not to miss any nook and corner.


Then I let it dry thoroughly before touching the newly painted surface.


The final result is so beautiful and I already know where I will display it. Spray painting is much more easier then it looks and I can't wait to goldify (not a real word) many more things.
