Faux Taxidermy DIY

At Wee Warhols I basically spray paint everything I find with flat white spray primer and have the kids paint it.  Everything is a canvas… well almost everything.  We have some boundaries.  I also like to gear the projects to my students to make them personal.  I know that one of the Wee Warhols dads and one step dad are avid fishermen.  So when I saw these rubber sharks at Anna’s Toy Depot (a local toy resale shop)  I knew that we needed to paint and show off our trophy fish.

 

-I primed a bunch of wooden plaques and sharks before hand using white flat spray primer, like mentioned before.

-The Wee Warhols painted the sharks with acrylic paint.

-The Wee Warhols picked out what shape plaque they wanted.

-The Wee Warhols choose a spray paint color for their plaque.

-I spray painted the plaques, since I didn’t want them exposed to the fumes and those triggers are too hard for their little fingers to spray anyway.

-I hammered hangers on the back before glueing the sharks to the plaques using E6000 Industrial Strength Glue.

 

I love this project for a child’s bedroom or maybe the Wee Warhols will display them along with their father’s trophy fish.

I loved the look of this vintage looking shark, so I left him like that.
