It's been way too long! How is everyone? I meant to get this post up a month ago but of course life got in the way. What's new, right? Anyway, a while back I saw an image (which I have hunted for and for the life of me CANNOT find because I'd love to give credit to the inspiration) of a gold leaf seahorse and had to have it. Turns out the art was around $400 and not in my budget. I decided to DIY the project myself with a little gold leaf kit, a seahorse stencil, frames I already owned, and some white craft paper.
the kit I bought online, you can get it here
the stencil I purchased here, the 11" reusable
To start, I taped down my stencil on craft paper. From there, all I did was follow the instructions on the gold leaf package. After following all the steps on the packaging, gently remove your stencil. The only thing I didn't do was apply the top coat that they provide. And, that's it! It definitely took some time because I had to do 3. Tedious project, but I'm very happy with the end results!
