Easter is just around the corner and we can’t help but share these clever gold leaf Easter egg globes by Sugar and Charm. Though these map eggs look difficult and time consuming, she assures they are not.
Gold Leaf Easter Egg
Using gold leaf glue, a paint brush and a pencil, draw your design. Paint it in with glue and then place a sheet of gold leaf over the top. Lightly tap it (it might lift, but that’s okay because you can fill the holes in later) and then give it a second before lifting the edges up. Your design will pretty much be laid in, but you’ll need to do a little touching up and cleaning around the edges.
