In case you haven't noticed I am OBSESSED with gold - honestly its seems to be everywhere right now in our house and when I saw these amazing gold leaf terra cotta pots on this website I knew I needed to make them. She did an amazing job right?!!
Terra cotta pots are relatively inexpensive so I bought like a dozen of them, one pack of gold leaf foils and then the adhesive. I had enough to make all of my pots and even some left over!
The adhesive is called "Size" which was slightly confusing when I was buying it.
Then I put a layer using a foam brush on the pot - The instructions say to wait until the size is dry - it becomes tacky however the terra cotta is so porous I applied the gold leaf instantly:
I did a few here and there until:
And then filled them with succulents (the only thing that seems to thrive under my care)
They are all mis matched and the foil is in random places on a few but they add a nice little sparkle to our front patio!
