Faux Metal Hearts

Pin It

When I went to DI I found these wooden hearts for 50 cents each.  They were painted different colors, and while the colors weren't horrible, they definitely needed some touching up.  I decided to try out some metal looking paint.  I really like how they turned out, though I don't think they look super metalic since the wood grain is still visible.  Here's what I did:

These are what they looked like to begin with.
 I painted them with black acrylic paint first so they had a good base.
 Then I painted them with metallic acrylic paint.  I originally had them set up like this, but it felt too cluttered or something. 
So I changed them to this set up.
