The Step By Step
Step 1. Shake the gold leafing pen well with the cap on. Press the point of the pen up and down on a scrap piece of paper to start the paint flow.
Step 2. Paint the areas on the front of the cake topper that you want to make gold. It will take two coats of paint so take your time. Wait for the first coat of paint to dry before you add the second coat or move onto the next steps.
Steps 3 and 4. Once the second coat of paint is dry on the front it’s time to repeat the process on the sides and back.
Step 5. Some areas on the sides are too small to get into using the paint pen. To get around that press down on the pen nib to release a puddle of paint into a dish and use a small brush to add paint into the areas that need it.
