Introducing the Gold and Silver Leaf Overlay Collection
Sometimes I have some images that I want to add a bit of glitz, glamour, shine and sparkle to, and this collection is perfect for that! I've create a variety of styles here, most of which are borders designed to add some flair to the edges of your finished art. A few are more solid, in case you need a larger background area of gold or silver leaf. Check out the example images below:
Above: Tiger with gold leaf border applied Below: Tiger with silver leaf borders applied
Below: Flowers with a mix of gold leaf and silver leaf
Below: On the birds on a vase image below, I applied one of the more solid gold leaf layers to the image and masked that layer entirely away. Then I reversed my brush and masked the gold back slightly on the vase only, giving just the brass vase a bit of sparkle at the bottom where the highlight on the vase was naturally. I then duplicated that gold layer and set it to hard light to pump up the shine and sparkle just a little more.
