Faux Deer Head DIY
Hunting? I'm not opposed to it, but spending long, cold, early hours out in the woods, that's not really my style.
Spending $90 on one of those, oh-so-of-the-moment resin deer heads?
I'm not opposed to it, but that's not really my style either.
So when I accidentally stumbled upon this papier mache deer head in Michaels I knew my hunting days were over before I even realized they had begun!
The steps are so simple...
- Paint head - not antlers - white and let dry. I used a latex semi gloss that I had in my garage, but craft paint would work too. The finish of the paint won't matter because you will then...
- Paint over the white paint with a pearl metallic paint (I used Rust-o-leum Pearl Mist spray paint) This gives it that glossy resin look.
- Finally, paint the antlers with gold paint. I used a brush and craft paint so that I could be more precise
