  • Gold Leaf To Carvings

    Hi everyone,
    I have never done this so I need some direction. I would like to apply gold leaf to some carvings. The application is carving to be placed onto the sides of miniature circus wagons. These were the very ornate
    parade wagons from years past. Thanks in advance.

    Gold leafing is easy, Most important part, make sure base area is smooth. I use a under coating of sign paint because it is glossy. Than put the sizing on allow it to dry, Use a very soft brush to lift the gold leaf up, place it gently on the surface. When finished, rub with a cotton ball to polish it. I get my supplies from D.i.c.k Blick online. If you search the web you should find some info on gold leafing. Have Fun!

      The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)

      🍷🍷MD is a cluster mess. Getting the vaccine is fast. Getting the appointment is another story altogether. The county executive makes the rules for their own county. State says 65+ the jerk that runs this county says no, 75+ then puts a whole bunch of people on a priority list. But, there are state...
