  2. Pour each color onto the surface and swirl the letter around until you get the desired marbled look. Excess paint will run off the edges.
  3. Using a clean, flat brush, clean up the edges and let dry completely.
  4. Paint edges with "Gold" craft metallic paint; let dry and apply a second coat if needed.
