Today I am mostly gilding Birdcages
First I painted the grungeboard with gesso, then sprayed with Tattered Angels Lily Pad spray partially covered with Modge Podge and then used Variegated Green Gilding flakes. After that I have stamped a fern leaf stamp on the non-gilded pieces. It is achieving the look I wanted but am only on my third one, as I have to wait for the Modge Podge to dry before I rub off the flakes.
Top Tip: Put the Gilding Flakes in a box to make it easier. I am using a bag at the moment and wasting a bit when I stuff in the glued item and it sticks to the bag!
In fact, I will take my own advice in a minute and transfer my flakes to a box hopefully I can speed up the process a bit.
