The fact that nobody understands you dosen't make you an artist.

Hey, I feel a little dumb asking this as it’s something I think I should know the answer to. I’m thinking about adding some (fake) gold leaf to a forged steel piece. Do I just use the sizing they usually sell for leaf over wood etc. or is there something else I should be thinking of? Also, since the piece will be lacquered and I’m using SN metal dyes should I start with one layer of lacquer to seal it under the leaf? I might be over thinking it but I’d love to know what you all think.
Is this a piece you want to last? I have and use 1-Shot brand quick size. The size they sell at the craft stores I have not had much luck with. As far as covering it I would not think you would need to seal under it but the fake gold needs to be covered to last outside.
