Several days ago, I showed my blogging buddies the letters that I had scavenged from our neighborhood sign demolition! The letters were originally a bright gold. My first plan was to paint them flat black, but then I saw the hammered copper spray paint at the store. I decided to give it a try. First, I lightly sanded the letters. I sprayed the one on the right with a copper hammered paint directly over the gold. The letter on the left, I painted flat black first, and then I sprayed it with the hammered copper paint. I like both of them. My son opted for the black with hammered copper method for his "B".
Here it is hanging in his bedroom. His bedroom is painted with 2 shades of a denimy blue. First I painted the walls the lighter shade of blue. Then I mixed the darker shade with the glaze. I painted the glaze mixture on the wall a section at a time and then pressed thin paper that I had wadded and wrinkled up onto the wall to remove some of the darker shade. I would not do a whole room with this method again. It made my arms and hands very sore!
