I already had the paint brush and paper towel I used
I bought this letter because it was the largest and already primed white.
Then I dipped a dry paint brush in a little of the metallic paint and did quick up-and-down motions on the letter. I used the paper towel to rub off the silver paint in random spots.
Voila! Easy and cheap DIY
