Faux hammered copper letters

Had a recent job that I realized I could save the client some money by using copper leaf on PVC plastic, instead  of real hammered copper. I have done the real hammered copper for this client before, and it was very time consuming. I have used these art store metal leaf products in the past, with good results. The leaf is adhered with oil based paint, but let it just dry, and you’ll have a much better finish. In the last photo, the letter on the left has a clear finish.
