Arty Chalkboard Frame
Prepare a plain wooden frame for your chalkboard frame and apply leaf sizing using a 1” artist brush to entire frame. Wait for about 30 minutes until it dries completely and the apply gold leaf using a soft brush to lift the sheet gently. While brushing, pieces will flake off. Use the flakes to fill in small gaps between leaves. Continue the process until your frame is covered in gold leaf. Buff the surface and remove excess leaf.

Wear latex gloves and apply dark walnut wood stain in a well-ventilated area. Use 1” foam brush to do so and work the stain into the molded details. Use clean rag to rub off excess gently. Do the same process for the whole frame. Wait for at least 24 hours as the stain you use for the chalkboard frame will remain tacky during that time, thus always spare plenty of time for frame to dry completely.
