Default him and me ....and gold

a few weeks ago i was talking with baystalker and he gave me a rough cut of one of his hand carved lures.
he said for me to play around with it so i did.
a little shapeing and a heck of a lot of sanding this is what i came out of the plug shack with. oh the finish is more of the green and gold leaf.

Looks good smitty, I do like that leaf finish you are doing, it looks more.....smooth, and liquid-like, than the other marble style finishes I've been seeing.

Alright, I can't take it anymore, how do you do the leaf finish? It looks good enough for me to want to try my hand at it....is the stuff needed relatively easy to acquire? I seem to recall you saying somewhere that it's a PIA to do....that's OK, I do a lot of stuff that's a PIA (work, marriage, children, sometimes fishing) so howaboutit, gonna share? Hmmmmm?
