I thought I'd have a go at a gilding flake technique, using a stencil, that I've seen Barbara Gray do. Looked easy enough. Well. It wasn't! Not sure what I'm doing wrong, maybe the wrong flakes, or using inappropriate stencils, but I haven't got the crisp outline she did!
This is my best effort - using my favourite go to stencil, the leafy swirl. This one is probably useable for something.
These are my first efforts! One's a cogs pattern, the other is seed heads. But there are so many gaps it's hard to tell. Not sure what I can do with these.
Ah well, you live and learn. I'm booked on a two day retreat with Barbara in July, maybe she'll cover this there and I'll figure it out!
In the meantime, why not come over and join in our challenge for the month?
