Step 1: Paint a gradient on your canvas. On a palette, add a small drop of colour to your white paint, mix it well and apply it to your canvas with rough brush stokes. Gradually mix more and more colour into your white paint as you apply it to your canvas from one side to the other. The result will be a light to dark gradient with texture. Leave your paint to dry.

 

Step 2: Once your painting is dry, apply white glue with a paintbrush to the darker portion of the painting where you would like the glitter drip to be. While the glue is still wet, create a gradient with the glitter by choosing finer and paler glitter and sprinkling it at the bottom, progressing to darker and coarser glitter at the top.

 

Step 3: To give your piece a glitter-dipped look, continue the line of glitter on the frame. Paint the top portion of the frame with white glue and sprinkle the coarse glitter over it. Once the glue has dried, shake off the loose glitter, and mount it in the frame. Hang your sparkling masterpiece where it can catch the light and dazzle the eye
