Alice In Wonderland Chest Gets - Gold Leafed

If you have not tried gold really should.  It is a great way to add accents to your pieces and make them stand out.
Here I've added some gold leafing to the corners of this piece.  You can see that the gold leaf is not perfect. You can fill in any gaps with gold paint or a gold "rub n buff" that you can get at most craft stores.  If you want to learn how to gold leaf, look at my blog post Gold Leafing.  It will show you how to do this step by step.
I also thought this piece would look cute if I gold leafed her legs for added detail.

I will be finishing this piece later this week.  Can't wait to show you how she turns out.

Have a great day.
