You know how you can find a multitude of trophies in the thrift stores?
That is because everybody gets one for any little thing.
They are usually made of several components of marble-like substances, metal-like substances, and gemstone-like substances.
In other words, nothing real or attractive except to a wide-eyed child.
I found three Miss South Carolina Whatever trophies recently and decided they had a chance at being attractive with a little distressed painting.
I forgot to take a picture of the three before I started painting.
I chose a matte black sprays-everything paint for the first coat.
One coat coverage and it dried super fast.
Need to dig that can out of the trash to remember which brand.
I might have left them in the stark black.
They looked a bit intimidating though.
This was the same day I was painting the bust and the bench so I had plenty of gloopy paint left over to give these girls a makeover.
Used a foam brush and let the paint flow down each trophy.
Sealed the paint with a matte clear coat.
They appear to be zinc now.
Much more fashion forward.
Still faux, but fabulous!
As Miss South Carolina Whatever, I think world peace is a thing we should all want for all the people of the world in bad places where they do not know that peace exists and need to know we care for them and want them to be peaceful or something like that.
Enough said, lovely lady.
