Hi, my name is Abbeth. I'm an artist out of Portland, Maine, and I'm going to show you how to make an oil painting look metallic. So in order to make a metallic oil painting, you actually need metallic oil paint which you can find in any art store and I have this white metallic paint here and I'm going to split this in half and mix half of it with green and the other half with blue. You can mix the white metallic paint with any color of oil paint and it will turn that color into a metallic color. Now I am going to brush it onto the canvas and you will see how metallic this paint has become mixed with just a little bit of white metallic paint. My name is Abbeth, and I just taught you about metallic oil paint.
