– Apply the Midnight Black epoxy base coat to a clean surface. This allows for the highest amount of color stimulation.

– Prepare two spray bottles with each color blended with the dispersing agent.

– Spritz the lighter silicon dioxide (Star Silver Pearl) across the surface.

– Repeat with the darker color (Radiant Sunrise).

– Apply a final clear urethane coat to seal.
