Apply one hand of Acrylic White Gesso Primer by brush, or by spray (in this case diluting it with 10-20% water). Let it dry 4-6 hours.
when the primer is dry apply one layer of Waterbased Goldsize or Oilbased Goldsize and wait the complete drying; when the goldsize has dried, after about 4-6hrs, a sticky surface will be obtained.
Take the gold leaf using a paper-made spatula and put it on the whole surface treated with goldsize. Where the leaf doesn’t adhere perfectly, push it with a cotton bun.
