1) Wash the apple and dry it off with a clean towel. Cut off any bruises or blemishes.
2) Place the apple in a bowl, and add the lemon juice. Toss the apple around so that it is coated with lemon juice.
3) Add the gold flakes or powder to the bowl, and stir until combined.
4) Use the paintbrush to coat the entire surface of the apple with the gold mixture. Be sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies.
5) Allow the apple to dry completely before handling. Once it is dry, you can polka dot it with additional gold flakes or powder using a toothpick; set it out on display; or enjoy eating it!
