How to create pattern on glass, using gold leaf and oil gold size.

You will need:
  • Methylated spirit
  • Your design 
  • Brushes, 1 for painting size the other to brush off excess gold leaf
  • glass (charity shop picture frames are perfect to use) I’m using what I already have, a glass cabochon for pendant necklace.
  • 3 hour oil gold size (3 hours because it stays ‘open’ for 3 hours, plenty of time to get creative with gold leaf!)
  • Transfer gold leaf (is better than loose gold leaf as you have more control over the leaf)
  • Oil based paint to finish
(Specialist supplies are the gold leaf and oil size) and I thoroughly recommend Gold leaf supplies they have everything you’ll need to create!
  • You’ll only need the smallest quantity of oil gold size (60ml) and gold leaf comes in booklets of 5 or 25.
Have fun creating!
