First, lightly draw the a square with a pencil on your paper to denote the area you are working within.  Place your doily in one of the corners of that artwork area.

Next, get out your Metal Leaf Adhesive and apply a generous layer over the doily corner.  (I highlighted in peach the area I applied my adhesive.)  Note: Do not go over and over attempting to get a smooth coat.  It’s better to apply nice and thick and then immediately remove the doily.

Last, set your sheet of gold foil over the adhesive and allow to dry per the directions on your adhesive.

After the adhesive has adequately dried, I used a clean (and dry) sponge brush to wipe away the excess gold foil.

The result is this lovely doily print.

I made two of these prints and framed them in white rectangular frames I had bought a few years ago from Target.
