Introduction: Faux Zinc Letter
Faux zinc letters are so easy to make, and at a fraction of the cost, why not give it a try?
To begin, use the Preval Sprayer to coat the letter with black paint. Let it dry completely before spraying a light layer of silver metalic paint. The goal is to let some of the black still show through. Let it dry and then hang it on the wall or prop it on a shelf. It really is that simple!
Do you like the distressed look? Give your letter added character by lightly scuffing it with heavy grit sandpaper.
