  2. Paint project surface with a dark color such as black or brown, allow paint to dry.
     
  3. Important, mix double the amount of EnviroTex Lite product required to flood coat your project. Refer to Envirotex Lite product coverage chart.
     
  4. Divide mixture equally into four containers. Add one color of paint to each of the containers. Add just enough paint to color and no more, blend well!
     
  5. Pour each color in random patterns across project surface.
     
  6. Use a disposable bristle brush to lightly blend colors (do not use a foam brush).
     
  7. Raise project piece and tip to allow colors to run and blend. Hold for one to two minutes, then rotate piece in another direction. Repeat this process until the colors begin spread open.
     
  8. Continue to rotate and tip your project, this is necessary to allow the colors to open and spread.
