Soda Can Faux Hammered Copper Texture
Soda cans are upcycled for everything under the sun these days. I love all the creative ways people are putting them to use. Being kind of a texture fanatic, I wanted to see if I could get a hammered copper look with soda cans.
To be honest, I wasn't even sure how I was going to put the "soda can" to use if I made it look like hammered copper, but first things first.
I cut the top and bottom off and trimmed off the scraggly parts. (this piece is nailed down for the picture only)
I gave it a light sanding.
And then I started pounding away ---> on the cement --- with various tools and implements that I had around the house. I found the best outcome for the faux hammered look was from the imprint I was getting on the soda can from the cement.
After that it was just a matter of prime, paint, sand repeat until it look kind of like hammered copper.
