You will need
Gold leaf size (a quality adhesive used for gilding); we used Jo Sonja’s Tannin Sealer
Small ceramic bowl; we found ours in a $2 store
Gold leaf or imitation gold leaf; we used AFC Gold Leaf Composition
Soft, dry paintbrush and small round-tip paintbrush
White acrylic gloss paint
1. Using your stencil brush, dab a 1mm coat of gold leaf size onto the inside of bowl. Leave for 20-30 minutes, or until it becomes tacky.
2. Wearing cotton gloves, place gold leaf sheets onto the tacky area and press down gently. Set aside for a few hours to allow to dry.
3. Using a soft, dry brush, gently brush away the loose leaf. Using a small round-tip paintbrush, dab spots of white paint in a random pattern and allow to dry. Seal inside of bowl with your tannin sealer, or a clear acrylic spray, such as White Knight Crystal Clear Acrylic.
Note: This bowl is for decorative purposes only. To maintain, wipe clean with a dry cloth.
