Gold leafing on stone, wood or metal
Sometimes I like to incorporate gold and silver leafing into my necklaces. I am always looking for a different twist on my jewelry. This is not anything new, I started leafing some of stone and carved wood components at the very beginning of my jewelry career which started seventeen years ago
I bought my gold leafing in New York from Pearl Paint. You should be able to buy a leafing kit online or pick one up at your favorite art store. It is a tricky procedure which takes time and patience. I would select a stone or piece of carved wood and sand the surface for proper adhesion. It can be a 3 to 4 step process. You will receive the directions when you purchase your gold leafing kit. It is always helpful to watch a video on U-Tube explaining the process.
