Well the gold leaf is on a paint base. I did the gloss black over the whole market first

So far so good

That’s a cool idea. I used to do gold leafing years ago at an old job. It is a messy process with tons of waste. The trick is good preparation and base to get the leaf to stick. Top coat is subjective considering end use.
