~~Gold Leaf Plates~~






















I've been fascinated lately with gold leaf.  I'd never tried it, it was always on my creation  "to-do"  list, but we all know how long that list can get, and how high priority things may soon take back seat to new interests and brainstorms.  But  this time gold leafing took front seat, and soon I will be creating even more of these plates for my shop, and for a show I do every summer.  If there is enough interest in a tutroial,  I will write one up and post it here within the next week, so please, if you are interested,  leave a comment and I will work on the instructions and photos and get it on my blog as soon as possible.

Your plates look gorgeous. A tutorial would be greatly appreciated, I still use your coffee dyed tag tutorial! Gold leafing has been on my art "bucket list", I hope to give it a try sometime before I kick the bucket :)
