You can get this product from Amazon but I picked it up from Michael’s years ago on a sale. It is vey easy to apply with a brush. I paint it on a red dyed surface to create an old world look by lightly sanding randomly to expose the red.


Nice work,

Telll me more about the Liquid Gold leaf please.

You did a nice job on this piece. It looks like an older antique and you did a wonderful job on it.
