DIY: Brass Giraffes

Giraffes.  They are awesome, except when they get in crazy neck fighting wars with other Giraffes, that just makes me sad.  I have these two giraffe toys that I used for a school project years ago and I couldn't bear to part with them.  So when I threw out the project I kept them, and they have been moving around my various apartments I've had over the years until I can figure out what to do with them.  It would be ideal if they would come alive and be cute miniature giraffes hanging out on my desk but unfortunately that isn't going to happen, so I have been trying to find a way to make them more entertaining.  Cue the brass figurines.

I am obsessed with these cute brass giraffes and I might just have to start a collection, but in the meantime I will just use them as inspiration.  So, I made a trip to Michaels and bought some metallic gold paint to try and mimic the real ones, and I'm pretty happy with they way they came out.  What do you think?
