Still Life: Golden Deer

I find it pretty amazing how a layer of gold can completely transform an object by elevating it from yawn to yow-za with a simple change in pigment.  Now I am eyeing everything in my home imaging how it would look with a nice layer of meticulously applied gold leaf.  The glitter!  The gleam!  The glamour! The glitz!  Of course, I could simply resort to the lazy man's version of gold leaf aka gold spray paint...oh, the horror.
