June’s project is DIY Gold Leaf Photo Frame.
Give a basic frame a gilded veneer by applying thin sheets of gold leaf in a design of your choice. The process is delicate yet simple and the results are stunning. Cherished photographs or art will really pop when set off by this rich metallic finish. Endlessly customizable, you'll soon be gold leafing everything you own!
This kit includes the following:
1 - 4x6 Wooden Frame
4 - 5 1/2"x 5 1/2" Sheets Imitation Gold Leaf
1 - 0.5oz Gold Leaf Quick Dry Adhesive
1 - 1oz Gold Leaf Acrylic Topcoat Sealant
1 - 1" Foam Brush
1 Camel Hair Flat Brush
1 Pair Latex Gloves
I’m a little nervous about this craft, but I shouldn't be. Whimseybox provides thorough instructions, so I don’t think I can screw it up. I like that they give you a few options on how to do this craft. There’s always variations or you can totally do your own thing and make it your own! You gotta hook yourself up with a box if you're into crafting or want to get into it. You get a great value, quality supplies, and you are learning new skills every month!
