Gold Leaf Cards
We found this project on p.34 of the Speedball Gilded Style book. Choose a word or a simple drawing. Vellum paper works best because it is a non-porous surface. Trace your image using a Speedball Calligraphy Pen dipped into the Gold Leaf Adhesive. Let the adhesive dry about 15 minutes.
Apply the Simple Gold Leaf, shiny side down, over the adhesive and rub with your finger until the metal leaf breaks free of the transfer film.
Tear the Vellum with a ruler one inch less than the size of the card. We added a sheet of Shizen paper behind the Vellum and attached everything with little spots of glue.
