    The only gold leaf I've had done was a sign on my truck a couple decades ago. The sign painter put on the gold then put swirls in it using his thumb. There are several videos on YouTube like the one below. Just go on YouTube and type "gold leaf" into the search and you'll have your choice of several videos.

    Any automotive clear will go over gold leaf, use good sizing and if you want swirls like Len speaks of velvet works nice.
