You will need a large lamp shade; it is preferably that it has a plastic interior, baby powder, adhesive size for leafing, metal leafing, wide paintbrush and a soft brush to get started. After you gathered all your materials you can now use your paintbrush to paint the interior of the lamp with the adhesive sizing. You will now let the interior to dry until it gets transparent and tacky.
Now you will need to powder your hands with the baby powder so that the metal leaf will not stick to your hands. Using your brush you will need to apply the metal leaf to your lampshade interior.
