Start to work in Cobalt Blue Hue leaving highlight areas

Whilst wet remove colour with a wet wipe to highlight areas, this can also be done in areas which are almost dry by rubbing hard.

I like the random highlight effect this gives and it's a quick technique that reveals all the lovely textures.

To enhance the colour and textures further, apply DecoArt Metallic Lustres Radiant Red and Champagne Ice with your finger tip.
