Reserve the brightest sequin spots with masking fluid, using an old brush.
1
Apply an even base layer with the Finetec metallic gold.
2
Layer on shades of gold to create interest. (Mix Finetec w/regular watercolor for different golds)
3
Apply light copper where the sequins reflect her skin tone.
4
Scatter metallic dots to create sequin texture, getting darker as you go. DON’T paint every sequin.
5
Use a dampened sea sponge dipped in black to apply all over texture, then smooth a bit with a brush.
6
Use the rubber cement pickup to rub off the masking fluid. The sequins will look super shiny.
