Anthro Inspired "Zinc" Letters

I wanted to make a collage of pictures for my boys room and thought these would work great.
The price tag not so much...$18.00 each. So of course I decided to make them.

They were super fast and easy just the way I like my crafts to be and you can't beat the total cost:

Letters $3.99 each

pearl paint $1.89

Black paint..already had

Total= $9.87!

For two large letters!

Hey potty talk! haha! The boys got the giggles when they saw them! Boys!

Here's how it was done:
Paint letters with black acrylic paint. Let dry. Dry brush on Metallic Pearl White by Folk Art. You may use a paper towel to smudge it's super easy!

Allow to dry and hang! I used the handy 3M velcro hangers!

I may do some more fiddling with this arrangement...I'm thinking larger subway art! What do you think?

How do you make the subway art?

I use Microsoft Picture It to make my subway art. You can also use Photoshop.
