Don’t try this at home – gilding should be the first thing laid down on a painting before any paint. But, I changed my mind halfway through so came up with this masking tape trick (which happened to work – but might not always!)

Gilding with both loose leaf gold and transfer gold inspired by my students

Yes transfer gold is really easy! (And more expensive!) (maybe that’s why!)

When I teach the gilding component of my Fire course on request I teach the correct order of course 😉 Example just here as artists do change their mind, as do clients* *ahem ahem
