I’m so excited to share this gorgeous tutorial from Honey of a Thousand Flowers and Print in Cursive. These two talented ladies partnered together to create an agate inspired tablescape using gold leaf and organic elements throughout. Today we’re showing you how to make the pretty table numbers, but be sure to check back later this week to see the final tablescape and gold leaf menu!
X-acto knife & blades
Black Sharpie marker
1. Make sure the stone surface is clean and dry. Cover with masking tape.Using a sharpie, draw the number or letter on the tape.Using an x-acto knife, cut out the number or letter you’ve drawn.Spray the surface with the adhesive.
2.+ 3. Apply gold leaf and press down with the paintbrush to adhere and brush away extra pieces.
4. Slowly lift the tape, taking care to make sure the gold leaf separates from the tape edge and doesn’t lift off the surface.
5. If you mess up you can easily scrape off the gold leaf, clean the surface and start over. Be careful not to scratch the leaf once you have adhered it, as it will easily come off the shiny stone surface.
