  1. Pour each color of Media Fluid into its own cup, making an extra cup of Titanium White.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Add equal parts of Pouring Medium to each cup and stir.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Layer the colors little by little into one larger cup; use more Titanium White layers than any other color.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Pour the layered cup over the entire canvas and move it around to cover the area. Let the piece dry completely.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Prop the canvas up so that it's at a true 45-degree angle. (See photo.) Pour Clear Pouring Topcoat over the whole canvas. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use a small brush to add Matte Decou-Page randomly to chosen areas on the canvas where you want to add the metallic leaf.
    Step 5 Example
  7. While the Decou-Page is still wet or tacky, lay the metallic leaf over the previously decou-paged area. Let dry completely.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Once fully dry, use a paintbrush in a circular motion to rub away excess metallic leaf from the areas that were not painted in Decou-Page.
    Step 7 Example
