Supplies Needed:
(1) Pre-gesso'd Canvas Panel (any size)
Black acrylic paint
Gold metallic acrylic paint
White gesso paint
Cheap tablecloth (from dollarstore)

Tools Needed:
Glue Gun & Lots of glue
Paint brushes
small dish for thinning paint
Cup for washing paint brushes
Paper towels

1.   Take a pencil and sketch out a design of your choice.  Good first designs include a tree or a flower, just do a google search and find a pretty simple image to follow. Using glue gun follow design on the canvas.

2.  Once glue is cooled down, paint gesso over all the glue and let it dry.

3.  Once gesso is dry, paint gold metallic paint all over glue and canvas covering entire surface.  Let dry.

4.  Once dry, put a small amount of black acrylic paint into a small mixing dish and add water to thin.  Paint over canvas and dab with paper towel to remove excess paint as you go.

5. (Optional step) You can add additional metallic colors onto the raised images if desired, or you can add another layer of  thinned acrylic paint in an additional color if desired.
