DIY Faux Zinc Finish

February 21, 2015

I love the look of Zinc, but the real thing can be rather pricey. Luckily, there’s an easy way to achieve the same effect! I chose to do the faux finish on a flower pot but you can apply it to anything from end tables to candlestick holders.

Terra cotta flower pot
Flat black spray paint 
Martha Stewart Metallic craft paint in Titanium
Chip brush

[Spray paint the terra cotta pot. You’ll probably need 2 coats to cover. Let dry in between coats]
[Brush a thin coat of the Titanium paint on to the brush]

[Brush the paint on in short strokes, using a crosshatch motion. The paint dries fast so work in small areas]

[Repeat until the whole pot is painted. Make sure to keep the paint thin enough so that the spray paint is still slightly visible]
