Tony Kindelspire is digital content editor of Sign & Digital Graphics & WRAPS magazines.

 

This video tip comes from Rick Bendi, a self-described “born and bred Chicagoan.” His shop, Bendi Enterprise, is located in West Dundee, Illinois, on the far western edge of the Chicago metro area. Bendi’s Facebook page says he’s been doing custom hand-painted pinstriping, lettering and wall murals for more than three decades. Here, he gives a quick-and-painless tutorial on gold leafing. A lot of information packed into this 10 minutes.
