Leafing is pretty easy. Its essentially 2 easy steps:
1) Paint on the adhesive sizing, and allow it to completely dry to a clear, sticky surface.
2) Lay down your leaf sheet over the adhesive area, and brush it down with a dry soft cloth or dry paintbrush.You can get a more classic look by applying a red base coat before applying the adhesive, and giving it an antique wash to highlight the details and give it a timeless look. You can also seal it with the satin sealer to keep it from tarnishing.
25 sheets of imitation gold leaf
2 oz. jar of adhesive size
2 oz. jar of satin sealer
