Most likely out of all the projects I've done this is the one which stands out if I were asked which one stands out in your mind.
The customer came to me and said I have this medal glass top table I bought. It's nickle plated over brass. I tried to have the nickle rubbed out in places to let the brass show through and it is not giving me the look I want. Will you gild it as you see fit. I took the table and studied it for a couple of weeks and then got to work. I need to acid etch the areas that would receive the 23.5K gold leaf. and bit by bit started to apply the sizing and then gilt. Removing any areas that look ornate with the gold. I had to show Larry this Job so I made an appointment to give him a tour of the home. I think he was a little shell shocked.
