How To Apply 24 Carat Gold Leaf Gilding To A Hand Written Card

Found a great blank card for my mate Matt's Birthday, and decided to add some 24 carat Gold Leaf text of my own, left over from electronic circuit experiments. Here's how I gilded the card. My tip, but don't try and do it 2 hours before the party ;-) as the quicker you try to do it, the more messy it can become as it stick to sweaty time stressed hands. LOL




As you can see it isn't that difficult, I've put a link below to where I purchased my Gold Leaf, Brush and Gilding Sizing.

It's a great way to add something extra special to a card, a book or any other present, and is messy and therefore fun.

Happy Gilding
