Priming for Gold Leaf

I am still in the process of applying the gold leaf to my hutch.
Time is everything right now and there is little of it!

This is a detail photo of what I first had to do in order to apply the leaf. Every little area I want gold leaf to go, I first had to prime it with this ocher primer. Many of the areas are small and I had to use tiny brushes and do it by hand.
The primer is all done now and I am applying the leaf - will give updated photos later on when I get a sizable area done.
