Are you loving these monthly Easy Art posts as much as I am?!  Throughout the month, I find myself thinking about what fun art work I can make and share.  Each month I am so excited but this month might be one of my favorite pieces of art to date.  Today, I am sharing how to make this stunningly simple Gold Foil Doily Art.

What are the Supplies for the Gold Foil Doily Art?

Medium sized Doily | Sponge Brush | Gold Leaf, 18 Sheet Pack
Metal Leaf Adhesive | Sheet of paper

See below for a graphic of these steps:

First, lightly draw a square with a pencil on your paper to help 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 art print.

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