Spray paint the ornaments. Its easiest to paint the top, let it dry completely and then paint the bottom. Don’t worry about getting full coverage on the bottom of the ball as this will be covered with gold leafing. Remember to spray a couple of light coats, instead on one thick one, which will help avoid any dripping.

Use the foam brush to cover the bottom half of the ornament with the gilding adhesive. Let the glue dry for 30-45 minutes until it is tacky but no longer wet.

Apply the gold leaf small pieces at a time to cover all of the gliding adhesive smoothing the gold leaf down as you go.

Glue the ornament to the holder base with the E6000. Tip: Since E6000 takes some time to set, you can try adding a small bit of hot glue to hold the ball in place until the silicone dries.
