Start with a layer of gesso, it will make a better surface to paint on and it makes the palette white, so the colours of the paint will show up better. Paint the palette Ultramarine blue and let dry, I stamped the gears and painted the galaxy layer using sponges and a toothbrush. I have made a video about that here, I just ued diffferent colours this time. Next is the stamping, Varnish and add the glitter and age the edges using a paint brush and paint some damaged spots to the edges. Make a wash using the media fluid in burned umber mixed with water and add that over the palette. When done varnish to protect. Give the paint brushes the same treatment. The Die cuts are painted black and given some metallic lustres layers.
