Who doesn’t love a bit of bling? When you know how to use metallic leaf and gilding flakes, and you have added this skill to your technique list, you will be able to add a really special finish to items. The hint of richness and depth that gold leaf brings, using embossed or shaped reflective foils and adding gilding flakes in different colours, all of these will make your card stand out, and ensure your work has the wow factor.

Did you know Gold Leaf has been used for ornamental purposes for nearly 8,000 years? Many cultures have used this fine, beaten, gold sheet to enhance and decorate precious objects. Gold and other precious metals are still valued today, with ceramics, furniture, mirrors, artwork even food being burnished to enhance decorative features.

This class will cover basic ways of using gold leaf and metallic gilding flakes, and how to use these techniques to make beautiful greeting cards. The class is more of a demonstration, as a lot of materials are needed, but if you want to have a go, please do. Liz will make three cards, each one using a different technique. Liz loves answering your questions and enjoys seeing your creations too.
