Color of the year spraypaint

I don't know about you, but I'm loving all the emerald green I've been seeing thanks in part to it being the color of the year.  Back when I was pregnant and didn't know what I was having I did a design board for a boy featuring emerald green as the accent color.  So, since I like it so much I've been searching for the perfect spraypaint to transform some pieces I've found.  Here's what I came up with, Krylon Leaf Green.  It is the perfect shade of Emerald, not too John Deere and not too primary green.  The only downside I've found to this paint is the small size.  It's about a third of the size of normal cans, but it works well for small projects.



My first project was this little elephant I picked up at Goodwill for a few dollars.  It reminds me of these cool elephant stools, only on a smaller scale.

He's sitting on a new shelf we added to our living room which I'll share soon once I get it all styled up.   Have you found any great shades of green spray paint?  I'm really looking forward to some warmer weather so I can start painting a little more!

Oh, look at that. Love him in green. I have one of those elephants too but in large. Question is this Krylon green a better shade than the actual Krylon Emerald spray paint. They don't have it at our local store and I was thinking about ordering some online, but wasn't sure about what shade of green to get.
