Great idea. I've seen gold leaf applied but never followed through on my own art. This is alot more appealing. I have a small hummingbird picture that I'm thinking of painting again & maybe I'll try this method. :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing,

I think you were replying to a thread that Deborah Secor started on the gold powder used with the hummingbird? What a fabulous thread!

Valorie, is this a response to Deborah's article on gold leaf?

I remember seeing your painting of hummingbirds, Valorie. I think you may be referring to my article on working over the Schmincke gold paint (not actually leaf). Hope it was helpful!

If anyone else is interested in knowing about this you can check it out here: Pastel Hummingbird on Gold Painted Wallis Paper (http://www.wetcanvas.com/Articles2/23609/639/)

Let us see how you do with it, Valorie. :wave:
