Gold leafing...

I had done a little bit of gold leafing at Pitlochry before but it was to look kind of tarnished and broken. This time however was a little more solid.

We put down the Wundasize which is a glue that stays tacky for longer, then you apply the sheets of gold very carefully trying not to touch them with your hands as they can rip very easily and are very flyaway.

Next you smooth it down with a brush and once its all aply you can dab round the edge to take away any excess.

Et voila...
