What are you most proud of? I have long since wanted to create a metallic look, but have always failed with different paints. Once I learned how to guild things through a craftsy class -- my wish came true!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Paint the balls before applying the gold / silver leaf. I forgot to do this and I have to apply two coats of leafing!
