How do you paint Gold Dipped Pencils?

The steps for these babies are just about as complex as the supply list (I joke).  First of all, decide on the amount of gold you would like to be shown.  I wanted mine to be gold just under halfway.

I didn’t want the gold to rub off if it showed where I would typically hold my pencil.

Next, wrap your painter’s tape around the twig, making sure to push it snuggly against all the bark crevices.

Lastly, using your Gold Leafing Paint… paint away!

Be sure to allow adequate dry time before removing the tape and kissing these beauties… unless you want gold lips.
