Painting on top of metal leaf gives your acrylic paintings an amazing glow. You will learn the ins and outs of applying metal leaf over both smooth and textured surfaces. You will also learn a quick way to get a similar effect on almost any surface. When you use transparent paints and glazes on top of the metal, your colors pop. Experiment with both transparent and opaque paints to create wonderful contrasts and top it off with a transparent transfer. Tyvek painted with metallic paints then heated creates a unique element to add to your painting. The article I wrote in Cloth Paper Scissors called Make it Glow, was one of the most popular. Now you can get the hands-on direct experience for making everything you touch glow like gold.
