Treasure Chests : Part 2

Part of the challenge of creating these "treasure chests" is deciding how to finish them. 
I wanted to go ahead and try something bold to see how it looks. Hopefully is does not distract or compete with the art work within the box. We will just have to wait and see. . .

This gold leafing process is quite lengthy just because of the drying time required. This stuff stays tacky to the touch for days. . .

Applying adhesive medium
Hopefully it is worth all the waiting. 

Black leaf on box
Even if it does not work out for its intended purpose. It is most definitely going to be an awesome box.
Back soon with more.
Part 1 --- Part 3
Until next time.
Peace and Love
