HOW TO MAKE THE FEATURE WALL

Step 1

Use the steel ruler and craft knife to cut a triangle template from the cardboard.

 

Step 2

Place the template randomly on the wall and trace it with the pencil.

 

Step 3

Use the painter’s tape to mask the triangles on the wall.

 

Step 4

Paint the triangles in the colours of your choice, leaving some free for the gold leaf.

 

Step 5

Apply the gilding size (adhesive) to the triangles you left open. Let it get tacky for a few minutes, and then apply the gold leaf. Wipe away any excess of the gold leaf with a soft-bristle brush.

 

Step 6

Remove the painter’s tape.
