faux coral

Inspired by this post I tried my hand at making my own faux coral and here is the result...

this plastic coral is actually from the Aquarium section at Walmart!

I just spray painted it  and even let a little of the paint chip 
for a more realistic effect

a cool tip to make it look more three dimensional, is to put grey spray primer underneath 
and then spray over that with a lighter colour

and voila!
