Gardian Angel


I ment to have this as the last post, and the last as the first.
(but I think you will get the guist of it.)
So when I said 'weld' the gold with the liquor what is really
happening!?

The alcohol activates the rabbit skin glue to become sticky.
It grabs the gold and as it drys, it becomes one with the frame.
This is why you need to have your recipe right.
Too much glue kills the gold, too less, and it won't grab it.
Tomarrow I will burnish the gold, give it a rub, and tone
the gold per corner sample specs.
I then finish it and it's ready for pick up by the customer!
I will also talk about time, materials, and cost.
Thanks for being patient, this really is a fun art of sorts.

Frank mentioned a gardian angel in the operating room
for Renee. So next week I will gild an angel for you!

What a kind, thoughtful and very talented man you are Bill. It amazes me still to see the skill and patience you need to do an exquisite job like this one. Frank is a fortunate guy to have you on his corner. HUGS!
