I dabbed a dry brush in the paste and worked it onto the frameYou can use your finger or a soft cloth, but I found the brush worked best for me, getting into all the corners.I finished 1 side of the frame at a time before moving onto the next.When the frame was complete, I waited about 12 hours before buffing it up with a soft cloth to make it a little shinier.

How to Silver Gild an Old Picture Frame
With our newly laid cement finish floor, we have had add some modern touches to our home. We are painting the walls a warm grey [Plascon - Evasive White] Our pastel art work was framed in a gold frame which looked a little too bright and dated. This is how I transformed it onto a trendier silver: I removed the frame from the picture and cleaned it with a damp cloth.
I am so pleased with the result! The Mirror in the entrance hall is about to have it's frame transformed too!
