Monday night was a fantastic evening filled with a group of Library goers who rolled up their sleeves and dived into the shiny world of metal leafing!
Participants had the choice of working with a fox illustration that could be colored or painted after the gold leaf was applied or a small frame. One of the students, Simon, generously brought in some cool 3D printed Pikachu figures and Mario Stars to share.
I guided the group in the steps necessary to prep their selected surface for the gold/silver/copper leaves to stick and away they went. I was blown away by the creativity in the group! Though everyone had the same items to choose from, no two projects looked alike.

This was a popular class and ended up with a waiting list, so it will definitely be offered again at Rt 9. I'll keep you posted!
Students requested a materials list, and so below are my favorite materials linked:
