A while back I uploaded a Catalog Cover I did featuring drippy paint over metal layers. I had intended to make a tutorial on how to make these drippy paint bits when I created the design a year ago but, um, kind of forgot.
Feel free to use this tutorial but don't forget to play with it and make the effect your own! Doing this word-for-word means you're not doing your own design, you're doing someone else's. Use this as a jumping-off point and get creative!
