Step 3:

Slowly press the dried ornament out of its mold. Now you can decorate it with gold leafs. To get sharp edges use sticky tape to create lines. Then put a fine layer of gilding and let it dry. It has to be completely dry before putting the gold leafs on it.

Step 4:

Take down the sticky tape. Put the gold leafs on the glued parts. Press them down with your fingers. Then take a brush and brush away all the extra gold.
