Chris: I did this for myself after seeing some inspiring photos of David. I wanted to make his hair as silver as possible. I bought some metallic silver paint, but it looked too dull on the canvas so I started applying heavy duty aluminum foil with acrylic Matte Medium being used as the glue to compose the hair. The piece just recently sold to a collector in Austin, Texas.
