Making a Calm Sea Water-base

moving on...

Now take a suitably sized sheet of aluminum foil...Take all jewelry off of your hands to avoid creating tears or deep creases. Rub the foil between your flat hands to create a pattern of small crinkles all over.

Apply a liberal amount of white glue onto the surface, place the foil on top and use a soft, long bristled brush to make the foil snuggle down and conform to the shapes.
