I was wondering what kind of adhesive to use for applying gold leaf to the skin. Has anyone tried this? Thanks a bunch for your input!

adhesive, you can use anything sticky. Gold leaf is very, very, very fine and delicate, it breaks up very easily so all you need is a little honey or syrup on a brush, that will wash off when done.

Egg white thinned with water makes an acceptable sizing (glue) for gold leaf. However, last time I bought real gold leaf - maybe 1970 - it was pretty pricey - I can't imagine covering a model. And handling gold leaf takes some practice - it's so thin that static charges can cause it to fly about.

Have you considered a metallic gold theatrical make-up? There are several quality brands in which you mix a metaalic powder with a make-up base and paint it on. The result can be quite smooth and effective.

Just a thought.

I won't be completely covered in it... we'll just be applying the gold leaf to my face... artistically. Should be a few months, but I'll post the results as soon as I've got them. Should be interesting. Thanks for the tips and advice!

I painted a gold mask on my face for Mardi Gra this year. I bought the ingredience in a costume shop. First yellow base, then gold glitter, completed with a sealer. I can check out the brands in your interested. Got to go, my flights being called.
