I worked in the sign industry for a many years. We regularly added gold or silver leaf to signs, because the finish is unmatchable. If the base is smooth enough, it's the closest you can come to chrome...VERY shiny It's an easy process as well. I think eventually, I will make a tutorial how the process works. I am wondering has anyone tried this yet? and if so, how were your results? Local art stores (even Michael's) carry small leafing kits, and they aren't too expensive. End result = you have REAL silver or gold, and an incredible finish that is very very durable and long lasting.
