Apply a coat of gesso to the canvas. Let dry.
Add a base coat of colors using the Gelatos colors - Translucents - Lychee, Creme De Menthe, Thistle and Persimmon and blend them with a sponge. You can replace these colors with Gelatos colors of your choice or those that match your event/occasion color scheme.
Apply a thin top coat of Texture Luxe™ Silver with palette knife.
Immediately cover the wet canvas with a piece of plastic wrap. Smoosh the plastic over the wet Texture Luxe™ Silver around gently with your fingers to create texture. Leave the wrap on till the Texture Luxe™ Silver dries. Do not try to speed up the drying process with a heat tool as the heat might melt the plastic onto the canvas.
Carefully peel away the plastic wrap to reveal the textured surface.
Lay the Always & Forever stencil at about the center of the canvas and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife. Avoid applying Whipped Spackle on the 'o' or wedding ring part of the Forever. Let the medium dry thoroughly.
Apply Texture Luxe™ Gold on the wedding rings part of the Always & Forever stencil with palette knife. Let dry completely.
Apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to create the gem part of the wedding rings using the Always & Forever stencil and palette knife. Let dry.
