‘Nique o’ the Day – Gilded Masking Tape

This is an accidental discovery – I was masking off an area to apply some gold leaf when I realized that the tape was cooler than the area the leaf stuck to. So I made some gold-leafed masking tape – it’s a great collage embellishment. Here’s how – tape strips of masking tape to waxed paper, spray it all lightly with 3M adhesive, apply the gold leaf, then let dry. You can strip it off cut it and trim it, and just stick it on any place. It ends up being a heck of a lot more expensive than regular masking tape, so don’t wrap packages with it!
