Martha Stewart Crafts Metallic Acrylic Paint
I squirted my paint dots right out of the bottle to ensure that the dots were relatively even in size. I didn’t want one dot to have significantly more or less paint than any of the others. Using your paint brush, make a rough diamond shape where each paint dot is located. Continue making the rough diamonds. Once all the blue diamonds are completed, go over each of them with a little bit of the white pearl paint.
We’re just trying to add a little extra sheen. On the right side of each blue diamond, add a smaller, silver one. Make the assumption that the pattern continues off the canvas and paint silver diamonds to the right of where the assumed blue diamonds are. Does that make sense? Continue painting the silver diamonds off the edge of the canvas. Add small green diamonds (the same size as the silver ones) to the left of the large, blue diamonds. Add small, green diamonds on top of the large, blue ones.
The pearl and metallic paint aren’t as opaque as I’d like them to be, so I added a couple extra coats of green and silver paint.
