Whether you are struggling to find the perfect piece to fit your decor, or you simply would love a fun art project to complete in your spare time, this wall art tutorial is a great option! Created by Jamie Satterwaite, this art can be created and ready to be hung in just a few hours. And lucky for me, I don’t have to be a great artist in order to create my own beautiful faux pewter art.

Remove glass from frame and clean well.
Using a toothbrush, dip into white metallic paint a splatter the paint onto the glass. The best way to accomplish this is the dip toothbrush into paint, wipe excess off and slowly drag your thumb across the top.
Allow paint to dry completely.
Working in small sections, spray an area with adhesive and apply silver leafing. Using the paintbrush, smooth out any air bubbles as you go.
Allow to dry for 4 hours before placing it back into the frame.
