i bought a ridiculous number of animal "toob" sets including, aquatic life, wild/safari, horses aka stallions, and dinosaurs. i already had the silver paint from a previous project, and had bought the little tubes of acrylic paint for future projects with freezer paper. those may still happen but dont hold your breath. but sparkle spray paint. oh my god people. it is "intense shimmer finish" all right. it also is so aerosolized, it blows glitter fucking everywhere. i cleaned glitter off the wall, all my dishes, the stove, the side of the cabinets, and the floor. but i digress.
so how to use these painty bits of goodness?
step 2: using hot glue gun add either a magnet or a thumbtack [the flat kind not the one with the little plastic handle]
step 3: realize hot glue gun is on "ultra blistering friggin hot" instead of "normal" after burning self multiple times
step 4 [optional]: swear profusely
step 5: blob some paint on it
step 6: smush it around - top side only - with a $.49 sponge paint brush. no need for the $8 martha stippling brush
step 7: let dry
see below for steps 2-7 again in a much larger scale
