Yeah, that’s right. I gold leafed my flowers and if you can believe it, they are even prettier with the little flecks of gold on the petals.
The process is really straight forward. Using a gold leaf kit (affiliate link), simply paint the tips of the petals with the gold leaf adhesive/glue and then press your sheets of gold leaf on the petals where the adhesive is. Large strips of gold leaf may come off of the sheet, but simply let the adhesive dry and then pull the excess gold leaf off to be left with just the right amount of gold edged petal.
I am so in love with the way they turned out and will definitely be adding a touch of gold to all my flowers from now on. It just adds that extra bit of glam to an already beautiful bunch. Don’t you think?
