I wanted to silver leaf the brown band at the top and bottom of the fish tank. I started with the expensive stuff. It works really well on  iintricate items. Since it was a straight shot I thought why not try aluminum foil. I used the same adhesive for both. Can you tell the difference?  I have the bottom of the tank to finish. Then the fun  decorating happens.

Smiles, alice
