Example text

Pull a little of the bottom tissue back from the leaf and touch the exposed leaf to the size. The leaf will stick and you can pull the rest of the tissue away and let the leaf float down to the rest of your surface (a dry paint brush can help “direct” the leaf down smoothly). All leaf is very light and flies away easily, so wherever you gild, be sure it is free of drafts! com Z7246i 042-061 Ch 4 Ornamentatio54 54 2/3/11 3:28:32 PM 3 Ensure Coverage Pat down the leaf to your surface with a soft wide brush, patching up spots where the leaf didn’t cover as you go.

Adjacent wet areas will bleed into each other, so if you’d like to keep your colors distinct let an area dry thoroughly before painting the area next to it. 3 Add Shading with Colored Pencil 4 Finish with Details If you liquify too much, just shade color in again and liquify it again. Make sure to let the area thoroughly dry before coloring it again. Here I’ve shaded more purple into the tips of the wings, which when liquified blends back into the original colors. Let the liquified color dry. Once dry, you can add fine details on top with a fine ink pen or colored pencils.

If you find you’ve missed a spot or the leaf didn’t stick very well to an area, just touch it up with more size and re-leaf it when it’s dry. If the design’s edges are a bit wobbly, use a craft knife (such as an X-Acto #1) and lightly scrape the leaf away on the edges to clean up the design. With re-leafing and scraping away, you can keep fixing up a project until it is perfect. com/newsletter_thanks Z7246i 042-061 Ch 4 Ornamentatio55 55 55 2/1/11 5:04:26 PM Color Basics Color is one of the delights of any project!
