DIY Zinc Letters

I finally dug my cardboard K from the depths of my "craft" room a.k.a. crap room and created a zinc looking letter. Much cheaper than a real zinc letter of course. I already had the letter laying around and the black paint. I purchased pearl essence paint and a couple foam brushes. This is brilliant whomever thought of this technique. It truly looks like zinc. So simple, so easy, so inexpensive.

This is where my K hangs.

Zinc like, yes?

First step, paint your letter with black paint.

Once painted black, cover with the pearl essence paint.

That's it, that's all. I have had this project on my list for at least a year. K letter painted, check!
