Next is to paint the design. I used acrylic gloss, but you can use spray paint if you want. A few coats should work fine.

Step 6: Step 6: Done.

After you have painted it you are done. Note: I took a piece of cardboard, dipped it in metallic silver paint and marked the design to make it look like it's been roughed up a bit. This gives it a little more detail to make it look metal.

These are excellent! Any tips on how you mounted them to the wall?

I actually just used tiny nails. I didn't nail into the foam, but any spot that would hang on it. The batman one has a nail center bottom and top. The foam is so light that it doesn't take much to hold them in place.
