gilding 101 plan b (part a)


Well, my framer is going to be another day out.

So I'm switching to plan b.
These are some more samples to choose from.
I hold these against the art and decide yea or nay
This is a fun part of the process because it dresses
the art and brings out aspects in the painting.

Thank you all for your comments!
I became a bit eager to do this post,I figured
my client wouldn't mind.
Well he does. He doesn't want me to show 'his'
painting on the blog.
I will still gild his frame, however I will be
focusing more on plan b.

Jan! Thank you! I will consider your choices : )

Celeste! Yes, there are so many type of gold, I am still finding 'new' gold to add to my palette! I will explain my decitions!

Sheila! Thanks! I hope to make this fun!
