Default Hey!!! NE Sport Fans....56k warning

This Is What I Did Today

These have been in storage for about 25 years. they are 18 in round by 2-3 inches thick.
they are made of plaster mold and weigh about 10 pounds each.

first I scrubed the dirt off them, Spray painted a coat of primer paint
then a coat of semi gloss white
went to Wally World and bought craft paints.
and here is the before, during and after pics

so let me know what you think.
