I'm asking for information here because I have tried unsuccessfully to use gold leaf in my printmaking but it just sticks to the plate and not the paper. I followed Brenda Hartill's instructions in her book "Collagraphs and Mixed Media Printing" regarding the mixing of the glue paste and the following steps but to no avail. I suppose I should go on one of her courses but at the moment I can't see that happening for a while due to time and money constraints.
So If any of you use it successfully I'd really appreciate a step by step guide including what paste to use/make/buy and where to purchase if I can buy a suitable glue. Thanks
