    What is the best way to recreate this with wicked colors? I know how to cut my stencils and everything, I'm mainly needing help with the shading. Do I go over the gold with detail black to get the gold darker? Or how would I do that? And also the highlights. Thank you

    There is no picture my friend....to get the gold darker though maybe a nice reduced burnt umber would create a darker rich tone over the gold?

    I do my gold with burnt umber for the darks. And yellow ochre for the yellow. For the dark red also burnt umber with transparent burgundy for the red. Put the umber down first.

    Ok thank you, what about the highlights? Just go over with some white mixed with yellow? Not sure how to do that!

    The lighter parts in there you just keep white and let the overspray shift it.
