I saw this project on michaels.com a while ago and used some Christmas money to buy the supplies I needed to finish it up. I already had one red glass votive, but I wanted a set of three votives. So I bought two clear glass votives on sale and also found the Krylon Gold Leafing Pen the project suggests using.
It was super simple to just paint the gold leafing on like you’d use any paint pen. I already had a pattern in mind for my trio of votives.
I went over the paint twice to thicken the color, especially on the clear glass. I love the way they turned out! These took me no time at all and would make great gifts! The Krylon pen was easy to use and I didn’t have problems with the flow of the gold leafing paint at all.
With tea light candles in them, they look lovely! I may go over the gold leafing one more time once the leafing that’s already there drys completely. Currently, they look very pretty sitting on my bookshelf.
I would definitely recommend this project! Quick and easy and turns out great!
