My Life.....My Projects!

A few weeks ago I bought this animal skull from Ebay and the idea was to silver leaf the head and leave the horns in its natural state. Finally, today I had the chance to start this project and I think it's turning out great. It's not finished so this is just a sneak peak :)

Don't forget to vote (just to the right) for your favorite topic!

Happy Wednesday


  1. I love what you did with the longhorn. You said you buffed it, how did you do that? I tried silver leafing a table and really wasn't happy with the way it turned out. I think if I try to buff it I might like it more. Can you tell me how you buffed it?

  2. Hi Denise,
    As you can see on the last picture, there are tiny flakes still on the skull. I gently buffed those away with a soft, dry cloth to make the whole thing smooth. For a table I would finish it with a clear coat of varnish for a good finish.
