Applying Leaf Gold

Applying Leaf Gold

Postby shirleygambrell » Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:16 pm


We used in a class with Rachel Plantier at Tybee. We applied it with fat oil and acrylic bristle brushes. Takes 2 brushes - one to pick up a small piece and place on porcelain and one brush to tear apart. It must be applied on top of fired luster or painted porcelain. You apply fat oil in the area where you want to use. Pick up the small piece of leaf gold (or silver or copper) and apply. We fired at 017. You can only fire 2 time at the most. You can see the flecks of gold around the plate. This was applied over fired luster.
