Sneak Peek: Watercolor + Gold Signage

 

Today I’m working on some hand painted gold leaf — actually, here I’m using liquid gild — 8×10 signs for our clients’ wedding décor, and later to live in their home! We did some on a hand-painted watercolor background (like their wedding invitations & save the dates), and some on a dark purple paper.

IMG_9151 I started by sketching out the lettering layout with my brush pens- then I transferred the design to my painted paper using graphite transfer paper, and painted in the gold.

We’re pretty happy with how they came out. What do you think?

Please excuse the crappy quality of my iphone process shots. Better images to come.
