This poor flamingo was on it's last leg. It was entirely rust. I roughly sanded it with steel wool and sandpaper. Then used that black can of Krylon Maxx to chemically convert the rust to a painted surface. Make sure to get RUST CONVERTER. The fella at Schmallmart didn't know paint and tried to give me the wrong thing. I used the plastic wrap to quickly tape off areas.

It turned out a little more flashy, and yes, she did get eye lash extensions.  Roll Eyes






This is someone else's picture of what they originally looked like...
