In separate containers, mix white and black paint to create two different shades of gray. Also, keep a small container of the white nearby. Add a couple of teaspoons of water to all colors to thin them out.
The following steps can be completed in one sitting; no need to let the paint dry between layers.
Use a dry blending brush to smooth out the fine veins. Repeat this step at least two times, and add in some white veins to create highlighted areas. When you're satisfied, allow the paint to dry for several hours.
