Gilders liquor


This morning I started by making gilders liquor. It is what
'welds' the gold to the frame.
Most gilders use rubbing alcohol, or denatured alcohol, I
prefer to use Everclear alcohol. It gives a superior look to the
gild, and it's all about Superior Gilding!

Add 3/4 cup water +1/4 cup of everclear.
(that's how to make gilders liquor!)

And if your guilding screws up, you've got a stiff one of rot gut all right handy!

Thank you all! If you are going to drink everclear, use an eye dropper! It's the
strongest booze out there!
Serious, be careful!
