  3. Using a #8 Soft Fan Brush CB618, paint the entire Gecko (minus the eyes and bottom of the piece) with three coats of SW253 Green Opal.
  4. Using a #8 Soft Fan Brush CB618, paint the top one-third of the Gecko with SW-146. Make sure to stir the jar of glaze in order to get crystals from the bottom. Apply two coats, making sure crystal chunks are not too low on the piece. They will run.
