Wasabi Girl and I got to work spray painting. We are complete amateurs at the whole spray paint thing, but I think our uneven job just added to the creepy, dilapidated look.
Jungle Boy tore himself away from his latest video game long enough to join us in painting in some details. We all started as minimalists but then just kept adding more. It was a lot of fun.

And here's a guy with an axe and another guy carrying something suspicious on his back.
We all love how this turned out. Give it a try. Great project.
