Once the area is clean and dry, she paints a gold color base coat. Hirsch continues the process by using a strie technique for the second coat of paint. She mixes one-third of a light brown paint color with one-third latex glaze and one-third water. She applies a coat of the transparent mixture and then drags a dry brush over the wet paint.
