NOTE: You can pick any three Galaxy Glitter colors that you like, just find a base color that matches the dominant color of the glitter paint you choose. Allow the glitter coat to dry completely before adding another coat.

  1. Use an Americana Acrylic color for the basecoat, in one or two coats. (We chose Calypso Blue, Jack-O'-Lantern Orange, and True Red.) Let dry completely.
    Step 0 Example
  2. After the basecoat is completely dry, add a complimentary color of Galaxy Glitter. (We used Milky Way Blue over the Calypso Blue; Red Nebula over the True Red; and Solar Flare Orange over the Jack-O'-Lantern Orange.)


The fan or rake brush works best to lay on the Galaxy Glitter. Holding the crates at different angles will help you identify any missed spots for better overall coverage.
