To start I bought a 9X12 canvas, modge podge, and of course gold glitter.
I searched online for a deer stencil that I liked, and I found one here.
I lightly traced that stencil on the canvas with a pencil.
Then I took a foam brush and painted a section at a time and poured glitter on it. After letting it sit for a minute I gently tapped the excess glitter off and fixed any holes.
The in-progress deer.
Once I finished the glitter, I sprayed the canvas with a clear varnish to keep the glitter from falling off the canvas.
