Anthro-style Zinc Inspired Letters
March 22, 2011 | Most Popular | Projects | Comments
We’re loving these Anthro-inspired zinc letters! Kristin, a very lovely Charmer, sent over this easy and affordable craft project. We’ve all seen the silver letters at Anthropologie and other darling stores, but it’s so easy to make your own for a fraction of the cost! Kristin bought seven letters for less than the price of one at Anthropologie
! You go girl… we love a great deal ; ) Check out the tutorial below and thank you Kristin for sending this adorable project over!
Black acrylic paint, Folk Art pearl paint, cardboard letters and a paint brush.
Paint the letters all black and let them dry. Then dip your brush into the pearl paint and use long strokes to paint over the black. This silver coat will give it the texture and depth it needs to look like a matte metal. Let that coat dry and hang them wherever you want!
