First ever experiment with silver leaf

Gilding Apollo sketch

I tried leafing/gilding for the first time, after being encouraged by Eeva Nukinen. It really is easy - think the key to success is really be able to control and visualize where the leaf will go while applying the medium. I tested this out on a quick sketch rather than something more precious, which made it easier to just let go and play with it.
