Copper Leaf Vase

I recently came across some copper leaf at a craft store.
I have always wanted a good excuse to try my hand a metal leaf,
 but never had a project in mind,
 until now.
I saw the above metallic vases at Country Road this year.
By the time I went to buy one they were all sold out,
so I thought... why not try and make my own?

 I found this vase at an Opp shop for $1.
It was the perfect size and shape I wanted for my metal leaf experiment.

I used a soft make-up brush,
 some cotton gloves and some spray adhesive I already had.

For my first time, I am pretty impressed.
It is by no means perfect, but I love how it turned out.

 Now, to just figure out where to put it.
