Pete, that is where I got the idea from!
On his "Blue" piece. In the DVD, he does not say anything about sealing it at all
Why I want to know is, for finishing, I've got the sealer coat on, the whole thing, but I like the idea of putting the leaf on while the piece is still chucked up, easier to do (I hope) and the sable brush at the end to knock off any excess leaf should be good too.
Unfortunately I do not have the leaf on transfer paper, they were out of "Real" gold, so I got it in this container that has a bunch pieces in it, might be a real pain to work with?
Oh well, that is another advantage to leaving the piece chucked up, if I don't like the leaf job, I'll just sand it off
