- Plastic animal figurines
- Note-holder clamp
- Hot glue gun
Drill a small hole in the top center of the animal figurine where the note-holder clamp will be inserted.
Apply 1-2 coats of craft paint to one half of the animal figurine with a basic brush and let dry.
Adhere stencil tape around the entire body making a closed triangular design.
Apply 1 coat of liquid gilding to the unpainted half of the figurine with a basic brush; add smaller gilded accents with a detail brush.
Peel off tape immediately and let completely dry.
Insert the note-holder clamp into the pre-drilled hole, using hot glue to secure.
