    recent gilding jobs

    The large ornate frame. Jarrod needed to make the 4 corners that were missing and strips of the outer edge trip missing of parts of broken out.
    I did some water gilding on part of the frame. this was a 3 part frame. 23.5 ct. gold






    about $1,200.00 in gold between both frames. almost 2 boxes of 500 leafs per box
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Great work, Dave.

    I've done a bit of gilding myself.
