Thanks you

Angles to finish the 24k gold leaf

Initially I wanted to paint the aluminum angle iron bomb "golden" for the golden effect, but in view of the result of said paint (what I expected) it proves to be very disappointing.

So I decided to take one at a corner, the 24 carat gold leaf. The result is now more than appointment.

A little comparison to illustrate my point :

#1 The left stick has not been worked, it is aluminum.
#2 The middle is spray-painted "golden" trade.
#3 And finally the last is plated 24K gold.

Overview angles gilded with 24 carat gold leaf.

Next step : System rain creation.

Following soon.
