    Step 0 Example
  2. Leave the top third of the tree unpainted. At the top of the remaining 2/3rds, paint Ivory Pearl about 1" down. (See photo.) To ombre, mix one or two drops of Gold to Ivory Pearl, blending toward the middle. Continue painting down, gradually adding more Gold. Finish by painting only Gold on the bottom. Let dry.
