Here’s what she looked like… not too bad for less than a buck!

First she needed a good cleaning.

Then I decided to brighten her up with some coral paint.

I painted the backing solid coral and then dry brushed some coral on the top sides.

I let it dry about an hour before dry brushing some white over the coral on the top side areas.
