Adding metal leaf to your watercolours

Gold leaf, used over watercolour and ink

About the Course

Do you love the glint of gold, or the mellow shine of copper? Join Liz Chaderton to find out how to apply gold or metal leaf to your watercolours.
We will venture into the world of mixed media, using metal leaf with our watercolours to bring a lovely shine and new dimension to our work.

We will use gold size and loose leaf to achieve different effects and then combine it with our paintings. You may wish to bring a painting which you would like to add gold leaf to.

The course will be held in a rural location in Knowl HIll, Berkshire, to provide you with an inspiring and relaxing environment. All materials are provided, along with refreshments. No experience is needed to fully enjoy the day. If you alreay love painting in watercolours you will be provided with plenty of stimulation! Liz will let everyone go at their own pace to get the most out of the day.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
