DIY Wednesday: Faux metallic figurines

Today's project comes from the stylish DIY blog P.S. I Made This. If you though used toys were suitable only as subjects of three-part Pixar animated features, think again. Erica Domesek took an assortment of toys, gave them two coats of Krylon metallic paint and had herself a bunch of metallic accent pieces.

My favorite was the alligator.

Get the full tutorial here. Stop back next week for a tutorial of my own.


  1. this is totally awesome. just imaging the potential for all those random toys/props at the flea market. :) this has given me something new to hunt for next time.

  3. Lovely idea! I'm going to have to get some metallic spray paint.

  4. Gorgeous.

    Why have I not thought about this before?


  5. spray paint makes everything better. not sure what i'd do without it.

  6. so brilliant. may have to save some toys from the garage sale box.
