Since my last tutorial I have a lot of silver leaf left and wanted to do something with it. So I took one of my elephants and decided to revive the lil buddy :) This project was easy but a little time consuming. The silver leaf is like glitter it gets everywhere and sticks. But all in all I like the way it turned out. If you wanted to silver leaf an object here is what you will need....
- An object to cover
- Silver leaf sheets
- Spray paint (optional)
- Gloss Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
First I took my elephant bank and spray painted it silver. Just in case some of the yellow showed through the leaf (this is optional).
After the object was dry I painted a thin layer of Mod Podge in sections on the elephant and applied the silver leaf gently.
Once this was dry I added a complete coat of Mod Podge around the entire elephant to seal everything in. Then I waited patiently until it dried. Its that simple :)
