paint the entire piece anchor grey and then silver leaf the raised areas, touch up all the silver leaf boo-boos, then hit it with some antiquing glaze and clear wax to seal it. Wait 1-3 hours until it's tacky, then apply the silver leaf, let that dry over night and then use a dark glaze to age the piece, it makes all the difference in the world !!

For this project, I used aluminum leaf because it was the brightest silver tone and looked the most to me like mirror (and the bonus is that aluminum is less expensive than silver leaf). A box of 500 5.5" x 5.5" sheets is $40-$50 and was more than enough for these two dressers.

Maison Decor: Use Foil for an easy Silver Leaf finish!--Artisan Enhancements Leaf and Foil sizing. Its like a watery glue that you paint on with a brush. Wait for the sizing to dry to tacky status, about 45 minutes. I roll off about 18" and then stick it matte side to the sized area. Then rub it on with a scrub brush or a dried sea sponge to make good contact before you peel the sheet of foil back.  The metallic foil will stick to the cabinet and the sheet will come off almost transparent.
