Using gold leaf effects technique in your art and crafts

Have you ever thought of using gold leaf (you can buy flakes or sheets at a good art supply shop or online) to embellish your artwork or crafts and create a beautiful, original piece? A touch of gold leaf on your design will give it an aura of elegance, even if you just put a few dabs here and there. I have a more detailed tutorial in the bonus section of my course (start selling your art and crafts online ‘The Essentials’ beginners course) if you would like to enrol. The link is here.

The art of using gold leaf in modern art is commonly associated with Gustav Klimt the Austrian artist. Klimt created ethereal paintings that glistened with beautiful gilded patterns of gold.
