Today thus far I’ve designed our family name initial T
for my first real gilding project. I am about to lay it
on my light table and trace it lightly onto my
140# Arches hot press watercolor paper.
The overall size of the paper will be 8 X 10 in
order to leave generous margins around the design.
I’m also going to experiment with colors to see
exactly where I want the gilding.
Here’s the design! What do you think?
Here’s the finished edge, gilded. It’s not as smooth as it should be. Something they say about practice…what was that? 🙂
I’m going to need quite a bit more practice, I know. But for my first real effort, I’m not disappointed. It’s so SHINY!
