Am I done with this one?

I'm hoping I am done.

To get this smeary effect with these paints, I need to remember to do this add-paint-in-strips trick.  It's almost the only good way to make the blended (smeary) look of the 2 white-pink lines on the above pic.

Next come the lighter streaks

These paints dry so fast that it works better to load 2 different color paints onto a foam brush then drag it across the ceiling. If I want to blend further than that then I'm putting just retarder on a clean foam brush and lightly dragging this across the area.  
( Pushing down will just lift the paint back off)

Still gotta put the streaks through it to make it look tie-dye. It may not look 13ft x 13ft, but it is.

Going to more expensive paints

Sometimes you've got to
use the more expensive paints.  I had to go buy the Blickyrlic Studio Paints to get the right
opacity and blending quality.  I used those paints here for the blue section and green/blue
interface areas.

Think I know what I'm doing.

Ummm..... uhh.... I think I know where I'm going with this.  I'm using Blickyrlic Florescent paints.

is this looking somewhat like a tie-dye pattern?
