  3. Prepare five cups of paint: Add a touch of Sky Blue to Night Sky to make a lighter blue. Add a touch of Ballerina to Pink Tropics to make a medium pink hue. The other three cups are Soft Jade, Ballerina, and Sky Blue as is. Mix each cup of paint with an equal amount of Pouring Medium.
  4. Set up a pouring station by placing cups or something similar under the frame and place the cups and frame into a foil pan. (The cups will keep the frame elevated while pouring.) Layer each color into a large cup and pour the cup over the entire frame.
