Hello! I am fairly new to prop making and am trying to turn silver flatware into gold to match the flatware from the Great Hall as seen in the Harry Potter movies. I have tried multiple methods including spray paint, rub n buff, liquid guilding and gold leaf. I find the gold leaf can provide the best finish but I have trouble getting the leaf to be smooth when finished. Any advise for gold leaf or any other methods to try?

Have you considered just having it gold electroplated? There are businesses that do this on flatware, candlesticks, etc.
