Step-by-Step Painting

Remember that teaser I posted a few weeks ago of the painting I made? Well here it is, layer-by-layer, step-by-step! (All pictures are mine)

First, I painted a canvas with silver acrylic paint.
Then, I painted on polka dots with blue acrylic paint.
Then, I mixed oil paints to make this color. I’m very particular about my colors, so I wanted to mix my own.
I then painted on these words. I had to let it dry for a few days to a week before I did the next step. Because I did oil paints on acrylic paints, the oil made parks on the paint (oil does that), so I had to paint in the polka dots and some of the silver again. I also had to do over the letters. 
If you look closely at this picture, you can see the oil marks on the polka dots in the above picture.
Then, finally, after redoing the polka dots, we have the finished product!

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven – Matt 5:3
