Daily ART Relief Pen Glossy White
I used an MDF board, cut to a bauble shape. At the very beginning, start with the priming. For this purpose I used Daily ART Primer Brick which levels the surface perfectly and increases the adhesion of paint and glue. Brick color is a perfect base for gilding.
Now, cover everything with Daily ART Gilding Glue. The glue is milky but it turns to transparent when dry. Wait until the milky film completely disappears. The longer the glue dries, the more sticky it becomes – gently touch the surface and see how your finger ‘adheres’.
The painted object should be left to dry naturally! Do not use the dryer to speed up the drying process!
After 30 minutes, you can start applying the metal leaf flakes. I chose gold-copper flakes for my design. Apply the flakes with your fingers or using a soft brush.
Cover the flakes with 1-2 coats of Daily ART Gilding Varnish. The varnish will protect the flakes from oxidation. When the gilding varnish is still wet, sprinkle the glitter onto your bauble. It will add even more sparkle to your design. The glitter will blend into the varnish.
Finally, I stuck 3 glitter stars onto the board and used a white Daily ART Relief Pen to add dimension.
