Take plastic flamingos from fun to frightening. Use Rust-Oleum spray paint and Testors paint pens to add flamingo skeletons for your Halloween décor.

  1. Work in a well-ventilated space. Shake your can of Rust-Oleum Universal Spray Paint for 60 seconds after mixing ball begins to rattle. Hold the spray paint can 8-12 inches from the surface and spray in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.
  2. After the paint fully dries, draw skeleton bones onto the flamingo using a white Testors Paint Pen. Be sure to shake the paint pen and repeatedly press the tip firmly up and down on a piece of scrap paper to prime your pen before using. After drawing the bones, allow the paint to dry.
  3. To apply feathers, first prime the spot with DAP Plastic Primer, followed by DAP Rapid Fuse Glue.
  4. Display your flamingo skeletons with your Halloween décor.
