Faux Deer Head DIY


The steps are so simple!
Using a papier mache deer head I stumbled across at Michaels...
1. 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...
2. 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.
3. Finally, paint the antlers with gold paint. I used a brush and craft paint so that I could be more precise
