I wonder if anyone here would mind starting me off with some gold
leafing technical info and perhaps tips. I want to do some gold
leaf work on a piece I’m working on at the moment, and so I

no postings directly to do with applying gold leaf.
I only need it to surface certain parts of a tincan eyewear shape.
What I have here in the way of gold leaf is Old World Art brand
’imitation leafing’, Ontario Canada, I got in the States a few
years ago. Will this do for a one-off exhibition piece?
The shape I want to partly cover, if it’ll help to see it, is the

eyewear - Things My Mother Wore Me’ The actual image is
I’d be ever so grateful for any help.
