And I even got a kiss.
As you can see, I chose neon pink as my color. Oh my word, I love it. Honestly, it's so neon and bright that it's hard to tell if it's red or pink. I had to do some photoshopping so that the photo matched what it looks like in real life. In the photo it looks completely red, when it actually is pink.
During the middle of the spray painting process, I broke his antler. Oops. Thank goodness for some super glue and spray paint...
You can't even tell I ever broke it. After finishing up the paint, I braided some orange and white bakers twine to use to hang the ornament. Then I carefully wrapped it in a plastic bag so that the antler wouldn't break again before it was time for it to go up on the tree.
You know what I learned while doing this project? I learned that I have zero patience when it comes to spray paint. Every person in my family that just read that sentence is scoffing and thinking not just with spray paint. It's true, I don't have a lot of patience.
So here's the best advice I can give you, just keep in mind that I'm terrible at following this advice - to get the best result, use light coats and repeat many times.
Ugh, even typing that drove me crazy. BUT! I will say that whenever my dad spray paints something he uses that technique and it turns out beautifully (like this awesome ramp he made for Cam).
Basically what I'm saying is, don't do what I do.
But, terrrible spray painting etiquette aside, I love my moose. Now there's only one problem - what should I name him?
