DIY Faux Zinc Letters

created at: 09/18/2011

Tutorials on faux finishes abound in the world of the internet, but this is the first I've come across for faux zinc. I have a few pieces crying out for a little TLC and updating, and I think this is just what the doctor ordered.

I love the way head above water turned hers into these rad bookends. All it takes are some select paints, a few easy steps and you've given some old pieces new life and some new love in your home. And of course this technique isn't limited to letters, so grab whatever you want to see zinc-ified and get after it! Upcycling at its best!

OOOOOOOH I love those as bookends! How would one go about acquiring a large 3D exclamation point and question mark? I'm having a hard time Googling for them!
