This is the first time I ever worked with silver leaf.
I wasn't sure how it would go.
I have decided it is alot of fun!
Last week I painted everything with chalkboard paint!
I think this week I am going to go on a silver leaf craze!
You will need the following:
votive from the dollar store
Coat the interior of the votives with spray adhesive.
Allow it to dry until it is clear and tacky.
Apply the silver leaf using the tissue sheets.
Rub the leaf onto the surface, then remove the tissue.
I used a dry soft paint brush to remove any excess silver leaf.
The first votive I tried to get the entire votive covered with the silver leaf.
As I did more I realized that I liked the look of cracks and was not
as particular about getting it perfect.
Spray the silver leaf surface with acrylic sealer.
Today I am sharing this at The Shabby Chic Cottage
