Gold leaf on stair rails

Hi, Can I gold leaf the steel rails on my stairs?  
Thank you, Pearl.

  1. Yes, you can use Genuine Gold Leaf or Imitation Gold Leaf on a metal rail. You would need to first use an appropriate metal primer. Follow this by applying an oil based adhesive. Next, apply the genuine or metal leaf and complete the entire process by using a clear coat sealer to protect the leaf and prevent wearing through (for genuine gold, which is very thin at 0.5 microns thick) or to prevent tarnishing (when using imitation gold leaf).
