Well, it’s official. I’m in love with gold foil in a big way. After making my gold foiled leather glass cuffs, I knew I was in love and I knew I need to try other materials to gold foil. Today I am so excited to share how to Gold Foil Placemats.
What supplies do I need for Gold Foil Placemats?
Gold Leaf, 18 Sheet Pack
Metal Leaf Adhesive
Green Acrylic Paint
How do I make Gold Foil Placemats?
Start by painting a basic rectangle shape with your green paint. I wanted mine to have a messy look, so I purposely painted it the way I did. Allow to fully dry.
Then, I poured a small amount of the metal adhesive onto a plate and used a wine cork to create my polka dots. All the adhesive to become tacky, as per the directions on the bottle.
Then, place your gold foil ontop. Since my surface was not a clean smooth surface, brushing away the excess gold foil was a bit more of a task that typically. It kept getting stuck in the burlap crevices, but all in all it wasn’t too bad.
Then, using a dark gray paint, I added a few crosses and painted on the word ‘menu’. I could not be more pleased with how these turned out!
I had just hosted a girl’s dinner club at my home a few days prior to making these… so now I will have to have another party so I can use these beauties!
