Metallic Silver Birds

Do ever just have the urge to spray paint? I get an itch for it all the time, especially when the weather is nice and cool early in the morning… so like 4 days out of the year in St. Louis.

Well the other day I was looking through my collection of spray paints in my basement workshop and found some metallic silver. Never used it before… and not really sure why not. I’m pretty sure I bought it for some project or another… ok, maybe not. I’m addicted to spray paint and I’m a bit of a hoarder. But it was time to give this metallic tone a try.

So I had some $1 birds I recently purchased for a little Spring project that never came about so why not put them to good use with a quick coat of metallic silver spray paint.

And it coated these birds quite beautifully.
