5.Gold foil-Michaels .. its better to feel the texture before buying it there are different varieties of foil .It should not be too thin(it crumbles in your hand on touching) or too thick( wont get the impression from the embossed area.)I just used imitation gold foil ,I wanted to try my hands on it first ,once
I am confident i thought of investing in original 22 ct gold foils.
6. fine markers and paints
This is the style of painting in which u can project all your decorative skills ,crisp and neat edges make it look elegant ,crystals beads and gold foil add richness to them
