Introduction: Metallic Masterpiece

Step 1: Base Coat

Cover your wall in a light gray or purple base coat in an eggshell sheen

Step 2: First Color

Start with your darkest metallic first. We used a bronze. Mark, tape, and paint a few squares, using a damp rag to evenly "rag off" the fresh paint, reviling the base coat

Step 3: Second Color

After waiting for the first color to dry completely, mark, tape, and paint your second darkest color. We used a copper, with some overlapping slightly with the bronze color, using the same rag off technique

Step 4: Third Coat

The third color, following the same instructions, is done with a gold color, overlapping both the bronze and copper colors

Step 5: Fourth and Final Coat

The final coat, with the most overlap, is done with a silver metallic, ragging the fresh paint to show the color underneath
