Remember two weeks ago I said I was slightly addicted to my can of Gold Spray Paint? The awesome one that makes everything it touches look like it belongs on Mr. T's neck? Well, I was online looking for bookends to corral my unruly books when I fell in lust with some amazing brassy gold animal bookends that cost exactly one bajillion dollars. Since my rainy day fund jar had, at last count, 56 pennies in it, I was a few jillion dollars short. Gold Spray Paint to the rescue.
It was kind of hard to find the appropriate plastic animals, which surprised me. I tried to find some online but apparently, plastic animals are only sold in increments of one million. And I only needed two. So I went to my local zoo's gift shop and found these guys:
A quick blast of gold spray paint, and voila! Do you like how I tried to recreate their natural habitat? A tipppity tip: Do not overspray. I did and it took over three days for these guys to fully dry.
I use Loc-Tite Gel Glue for just about everything (see below - glueing the heads back onto my Momiji dolls. Looking into their headless, smiling faces as I performed surgery on them made me feel like a cheerful Dr. Frankenstein. Odd feeling). Loc-Tite is a little hard core (one false move and your elbow is stuck to your big toe forever), I'm sure a hot glue gun would have worked, but this is faster.
