Introduction: St.Patrick's Day Gold Shamrocks
Step 1: Apply Water-Based Gold Size
Use your craft brush to coat the front of your shamrocks with size and allow to dry, If the shamrock seems porous, apply a second coat and allow to dry. In a few minutes, the size will turn from milky white to clear, which means it’s ready to gild.
Step 2: Applying the Gold Leaf
Spread a couple of gold leaves over your sticky shamrocks. Press down to make sure the leaf makes full contact with the gold size. You’ll see overlaps and wrinkles, this is ok.
Step 3: Clean Up Your Leaf
Step 4: Decorate!
Use a glue stick, double-sided tape or a dab of glue to decorate your pot o’gold, party favors or décor with these cheery, golden shamrocks. Lucky you!
