Gold and Silver Leafing Tutorial
We’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about how we do our gold trim. Usually we use acrylic paint or fabric appliques, but when the design calls for something extra special we will sometimes use gold leafing. Leafing is a great way to give your costume a little extra bling, and to paint on complicated designs that would be messy to do in applique. (CLAMP, anyone?)
For anybody who wants to try out this technique, we’ve made an in-depth guide below the cut. Enjoy!
