I have been so bad lately with not posting! I will be trying to get back to my Wed/Fri schedule starting now.
I have been (kinda) doing the Brit + Co 50 days of lettering challenge – which is a challenge in itself! I’ve definitely missed days, but I try to make up for slacking off by putting in 120% effort to the days I do participate.
This is a fun card I just love – and also my first try as using golf leaf.
I used a paint brush to write hello with gilding glue, then gilded away! My coworker had tried the same Martha Stewart gilding sheets and glue before and had a lot of trouble with it. I think the trick is to really let the glue get tacky, then leaving the sheet on for a full hour to two hours before brushing it off.
My edges aren’t very crisp, but that’s likely from the paint brush. I will have to try more gold leafing but with a straight edge to see if I can get a crisp line.
What have you gilded? Any tips and tricks for getting a clean line?
