Default Gold Leaf Over Old Oak

Hereís my most recent project. Not my idea. There was a similar treatment done a few years ago by a major manufacturer.
23kt and 12kt over oak, cast with Royal Palm Resin. I think the white gold came out especially nice. C&C welcome and appreciated. I think Iíll make a few more before I move on.

Patrick:

They look real nice, your Royal Palm resin is over the gold leaf, right.

I like those a lot. Very clean appearance with a nice textured look.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Charlie, Mark and Mal.
Charlie, Yes the blank was cut small, gold applied and then cast in the resin, then cut to size. Giving them a smooth feel and encasing the gold.
It will be interesting to see if in time the white gold tarnishes.
I may do one with silver leaf and allow it to tarnish before casting.

Not only do those look great, but you gave me an idea for a pen I’ll make sometime in the future. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the way the grain and texture of the wood shows through. Had not thought of using the gold and silver leaf before. I'd be interested to see the tarnished silver leaf if you end up doing it!

Also, what kits are those?
