Guidelines & tips:
*Start by installing the fall fabric, metal if required. You will like to put something under it considering that the paint will immerse through.
*Slop on much coating of white (off white/cream) level interior house paint. This might be key! Not merely does it include wight towards drop fabric, moreover it adds some rigidity and offers outstanding start for incorporating your colors and metallic accents. Allow dried out for two hours. You will utilize about 25 % of a gallon to pay for the whole 6'x9' DC
*After the white paint is dried out you'll need a few paint examples and a sponge. I began by gently sponging the 2 colors in patches and applied to fill-in. You prefer all the white covered with a slightly mottled surface.
*Then escape your metallic squirt paint and protect the end together with your little finger, this may cause the paint to trickle and spray. Spray away about 3' from surface. Simply FYI paint from a can is FRICKIN FREEZING so get it done in short blasts. We don't need you getting frostbite.
*After all of the paint is dried out fold the DC in half. Simply take a pen and sketch out a cowhide form from a reference picture. Trim out, unfold and adapt edges if needed.
