Supplies you’ll need for this project:

Gold Leaf – The product will come in thin sheets with pieces of tissue paper in between each piece.

Bole – A rust colored paint that you can apply before the gold leaf to give it a more traditional looking finish.  Barbara did not use Bole in the video below.

Size – This is the “glue” that you apply before adding the gold leaf.

Brushes – Be sure to have the right sizes on hand that will work for your particular project.

Ageing Wax – If you want to tone down the brightness of the gold leaf, you can apply a layer to Dark Wax over the top.

Learn this technique in the video tutorial below!!

Supplies Barbara used to prep the cabinet door:

Fusion Mineral Paint in the color Putty – Used as the all over color.

Iron Orchid Design Distressed Decor Stamp – Stamped on the door to give it a distressed look.
