DIY How to apply gold and silver leaf - ep 17 eng - Roma Custom Bike
Custom Cez applies some diy silver leaf on his gas tank.
episode we explore the process of applying a diy "gold leaf" or in this instance "silver leaf".
To watch the episodes were we prepared the gas tank using two tone powder coating click the following links:
Custom Cez builds a diy burnishing brush using a pencil, some cotton and a piece of felt. With the tool he proceeds to etch an engine turn pattern on the silver leaf.For the size (glue) Custom Cez has picked the "Fast dry gold size" from "1 shot", the project is pretty small so the quick drying time of this size is perfect.
Cez lays the size first and then the silver leaf on the design, once done removes the excess leaf with a make up brush.
Thanks to Jake from Barn Storm Cycles (www.barnstorm.us) for the cool t-shirt and the awesome support!
