Continue to put gold leaf all around your trinket. Looking good, right! It’s quite satisfying fitting all the pieces of gold leaf together, like a little shiny jigsaw 🙂
Once you’ve covered as much as you can on your first round, paint on more glue where the gaps are, let it dry till it’s tacky and add on a little more gold leaf. This material is pretty tricky to work with, so you’re probably not going to get it absolutely perfect. We quite like the character you get from the tiny flaws, it makes it more charming!
What do you think?
We’re really pleased with how it’s turned out. Add a little ribbon to the top and you could proudly pop this gum-ball machine on the christmas tree and all 😀 The best part is that the gold leaf is really versatile, so if you’re patient you can put it on pretty much anything and make your world a whole lot more lavish 🙂
We’d love to hear what you think of this weeks tutorial and hope you have a lot of fun adding a little kick to all of your cute trinkets at home!
