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
