Gilding is an incredibly satisfying craft and far easier than you may think to get started - here are a few simple steps to help you on your way:
Firmly press the glossy side of a sheet of wax paper against a sheet of gold leaf - the static between the two will bond them together
Place the leaf over a pre-sized adhesive area (the adhesive must be lightly tacky - not wet) and make contact. Only apply adhesive where you wish to apply the leaf. For intricate and detailed areas use the small round Artway brush supplied.
Remove carefully leaving the gold leaf bonded to the adhesive
Continue until all the gold leaf has been removed from the wax paper
Repeat until you have the coverage you require
Use the hardboard squares as a ground, on to which designs can be applied for gilding
