Now apply sections of gold leaf over the letters. I use a scalpel and a fairly stiff brush for this process. The scalpel to remove the leaf from the backing paper, then the brush to push the leaf into the letter's edges.  The leaf should stick nicely to the "open" size.

Cover each letter with a section of leaf.
