Today I have a cute and really quick DIY idea for the weekend;)
I am sure you all know these cute little bowls.
I wanted to do something similar.
I didn`t polish the gold this much, it has a matte finish.
I`ve got some Design Metal Leaf in gold,
Size for leaf metal and Shellac.
and an ordinary white ceramic plate.
Okay, now let`s begin;)
I used Scotch tape to create a little border,
like in the pic above.
Than covered the whole plate with the Size for leaf metal,
let them dried for 15 minutes and aded the gold metal leaf.
When everything was dried I gave em a coat of shellac to
seal the gold.
I like the little wrinkles of imperfection in the gold layers.
And that`s how it looks right now on my coffee table;)
Like I sad before, I didn`t polish the plate this much,
I like this subtile, soft glow.
You can use them for what ever you want.
I use the plate as a tray for my candles.
How do you like this DIY idea?
