Buuuuut if you don’t have $700 to spare, you can try making some on your own! This project is uper easy and can have amazing results – your friends won’t believe this art is hand made.

You can take this project in many different directions and styles. You can have a wonderfully abstract piece that ties in your favorite colors.

You can also do a piece that uses the gold leaf in a more obvious way, making a design or symbol that you love.

The other cool part about this is that is can be as complicated or as easy as you want. You can break out the pallet knife to build texture or you can just use a paintbrush.
