Laying the leaf

I like to start on the long side of a frame.
Working from left to right, I mop on liquor down the whole side of the frame.
Then I cut my gold to size with my gilders knife.
(I will go into this in more detail on another post)
Yes, I've used my grampa's filet knife on occasion, sharp is good for cutting gold!
