I got asked to paint in gold recently for a very exciting commission. The brief was to paint a golden big cat onto some leather limited-edition trainers. It was a challenge I admit, not having painted on this medium before but I tracked down some incredible paints called Angelus, had them posted over from the States and got my paint on! Thin even layers are the key to building up the image. Grrrrrr, I’ve got a fair bit of gold paint left over I’m now looking at my existing trainers wondering what needs jazzing up!
