APPLYING GOLD LEAF ON BEADS





So I consider myself a pretty serious crafter, but I have never used mod podge before. I actually bought it for the sole purpose of applying gold leaf onto beads. I feel like I hit a rite of passage. I have no idea what else to do with it. Any suggestions?






For the beads, I dipped a tiny paintbrush into the podge then applied it to the skull bead.










Then, I look some gold leaf flakes and pressed them down. I also used a tweezer for more strategic placing.


To seal the leaf, I applied another layer of the podge.









And that's it! Keep a look out in my coming posts for some gold leaf-ed beads.
