FOILED AGAIN!!!

Posted by STETSON CREATIVE Thursday, June 24, 2010

When you aren't accesorizing with rhinestones, you will find that there is another way! Using metal leaf is a great way to add texture and shine to the surface of the skin, though it can be extramely difficult to work with. Here, I take the guesswork out of it so you an make it look fierce!



STEP 1: Start with a good quality metal leaf...

STEP 2: The right adhesive is key, and this is the one time that I like to use Spirit Gum; which can be purchased from MEHRON along with the Spirit Gum Remover.

STEP 3: Brush the desired area with a light coat of spirit gum. Use a dry brush to tap the foil onto the area, and allow to dry about 30 seconds. Leafing is very difficult to handle so use care.

STEP 4: If you are covering a solid area, it will look more finished if you provide a smoothing coat. KRYOLAN Aquacolor works quite well for this. Just use a small amount of water and brush over the area with a flat makeup brush. This will give your foil a finished look.
