As part of Greg’s moving gift, I painted him and Betsy a “G” and “B” to look like a large decorative zinc letter. You’ve seen the ones that range from $18.00-$98.00 from Anthropologie. Very pretty but too pricey for me.
I took the raw “B” and “G” and painted each black, making sure to cover the letters completely.
By the time the second letter was painted, the first one was dry. I dry brushed, or at least my attempt to dry brush, the silver on it. The tricky part is making sure you don’t have too much paint on the brush. You want to have enough paint to cover the black, but not cover it completely. When painting the silver over the black, you don’t want to paint in any sort of pattern.
I bought myself some daffodils to brighten up my day.
I hope that Greg and Betsy like them along with the picture frames I got them.
