- paper (I used watercolor paper because I had it on hand and it’s nice and thick)
- metal leaf adhesive
- metal leaf (Gold!)
Then go over your sketch with the metal leaf adhesive using your brush. (She’s so lucky, she’s a star, but she cry, cry, cries in her lonely hea-ah-art)
After the adhesive has dried for about 30 minutes and is super tacky, carefully lay the metal leaf over the top.
Then brush the excess metal leaf off using a clean brush. This part is so fun. (Then why-y do these te-ars come at night?)
Boom! That’s it. It’s the most obviously St. Patrick’s Day element in my new little mantel. I had to leave the black heart garland from Valentine’s Day in cuz I love it.
Whaddaya think? Anyone else doing any St. Patrick’s Day decorating?
Linking up at some of my favorite parties.
