A couple weeks ago I ordered this gorgeous liquid gold on Amazon, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to use it. Obviously I want to paint everything in my room gold, but where to start…
I spend so much time at my computer that a gilded mousepad seemed fun! Of course I love the haphazard confetti look, so that’s what I decided to go for!
Step One: Shake up the gold really really well to make sure that there are no layers in it. After doing that, open it up and lay the cap somewhere you won’t accidentally knock into it.
Step Two: Very lightly dip the pencil (flat end) into the gold, just enough to cover the whole flat surface. I made sure to let the excess drip off before moving it away from the jar.
Step Three: Stamp the pencil onto the mousepad. Start in the corner that you want it to be more concentrated, and work out from there.
*tip: if one of your dots looks a little weak (see below), simply stamp over it again!
Let it dry for at least an hour, and that’s it! A super super easy DIY, but you can make any sort of design you want!
Now I’m off to find more things to paint gold… mwahaha!
