This is going to be harder than I thought...

I bought a soft make up brush and after waiting 24 hours used it to brush off the excess gold leaf. It turns out most of it was excess. Very little had adhered to the models.

 

I am thinking this is because of one of two reasons – either the glue wasn’t used right, or the relatively complex shape of miniatures leads to problems getting the leaf in place and also in having to brush excessively to remove the excess. This causes a lot of the stuck down leaf to be rubbed off.

 

I still have about two or three weeks of continuous printing before the centre piece is completed. In the mean time I am going to experiment with the gold leaf on some 75m figures I have. Perhaps with practice I will get better results. If that doesn’t work I’ll change my plan to a quick paint scheme and use the gold leaf on the centre piece terrain (which is mostly flat surfaces).
