"LEAF" IT TO METALLIC FOIL!
Want to "foil around" and create an effect to use with paintings, collages, and more?
I used a rub-on sheet of gold leaf, shown below, and patina solution.
|Gold leaf as rub-on sheets.|
|Other patina solutions are available, too!|
Caution: the antiquing solution eats through aluminum foil, so use plastic, waxed paper, shelf paper, or layers of old newspapers on your working surface!
In my experiment, I applied the copper metallic surfacer paint to the right side of my gold leaf paper, and the patina green solution directly to the left half.
|I prefer the right side, using both the coppery surfacer and the patina product.|
When the coppery paint was still tacky, not dry, I applied the patina solution to that side as well. Both sides were left overnight to dry.
Above is the result. Since it would flake off and perhaps tarnish, I sealed the surface with a spray varnish.
