For the painting:
Place the painter’s tape where you want the color to end. I wanted it to be 3/4 the way down the letter:
You could really leave the letters like this, they look kind of cool, but not as cool as with the DIY gold foil:
Paint the adhesive where you want the foil to be laid. In hindsight, it’s probably a good idea to cover the painted area with painters tape to create a straight line of foil, but I didn’t know that at the time.
Press it down and get all the air bubbles out by running your fingers over and smoothing it out. Once you feel like the foil is down flat, pull of the orange tissue paper up making sure the DIY gold foil stays on the letter (some may come off and that’s okay)
