When the varnish dries completely, it's time for the fun part — gold leafing! I'm seriously obsessed with my gold leaf pen and have no idea how I've made it this far in life without one before. Simply apply a thin, even layer of the stuff onto the top of the pendant and watch it transform from blah to bananas in no time... magnifique!
