liquid gold.

A table number how-to! I used these for my parent’s golden anniversary celebration. Now I want to put liquid gold on everything!

1. Cut paper to size. I used watercolor paper because I like the weight and texture, and cut sheets into 3in by 4in pieces using a paper trimmer.

2. Paint on liquid gold. In a well-ventilated area (seriously, this stuff smells like spray paint), brush on liquid gold to your hearts desire. It’s best to keep the liquid gold away from area you want to write on — the pen ink will fade into the gold a bit. Allow to dry for a few minutes and paint the other side. The paint dries quickly, but I would let these air out overnight or longer.

3. Write table numbers. Black permanent marker works nicely, but be careful not to apply too many layers because it may bleed through. Smooth out the edges of your numbers with a thin black marker.

4. Display. For my parent’s party, I used escort card holders as table number holders. For a larger party or for a party with taller centerpieces, consider taller holders so guests can locate their tables with ease.Β 

What else can I decorate with liquid gold?! Taking suggestions below.
