Testing out Silver leaf. 

This is my first trial with sliver leaf, I wanted to use something that would look of worth but also something to highlight the broken edges of the found potsherds.  This is my first time using silver leaf so I will need to see how well the outcome is. I simply used a liquid glue and brushed upon the edge next I gently pressed the leaf on and brushed away the excess using a super soft brush. I glued and pressed the silver leaf on straight away. I think I may need to leave it next time as it was sticking to my brush and soaking through the leaf.
