Metallized Skull project

My first go at Metallizing a Skull, love the look of a combination of white skulls mixed in with Skulls with different customized color tones.

I'm guessing Krylon paint - they offer it in several metallic colors.
I painted some light switch covers with a combination of copper & bronze to create a really good looking oil-rubbed bronze finish.

After degreased, I sprayed two coats of primer then used my sprayer and gave it two coats of bronze. Once cured I burnished the bronze, I decided To let the bronze cure instead of adding any patina while the bronze was still wet to get a more subtle patina effect.  then strategically used three different color tones to get the desired patina look  once cured I hand polished.And yes it is a Javelina

 Very cool! :tup:

 Is it possible to do that and keep the teeth white?
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Now you need to put a green bronze patina on it.
