How to Embellish with Gilt Cream

Look at all the things you can do with Gilt Cream!

This is a perfect product to highlight detailed and raised surfaces. It’s super easy and a very inexpensive way to give your furniture a pop of color.

Gilt Cream is made of a mica powder and wax and can be applied with a piece of cheese cloth or a brush. I have also used it on some stencil projects. This little bottle goes a long way. Here’s where you can get gilt cream. (My Affiliate Link) It comes in many silver, gold, bronze and many other colors.

Here are a few Gilt Cream projects I demonstrated in my video below:
