Hi,

 

I really like this fish carving - what size is it?

 

You were asking about gold leaf - I had to apply some of this to a jade carving a few years ago and so learned a little about it - you need a glue to affix the gold to the object and of course a lot of delicate handling as the gold is sooo thin. I wonder who might know more about this subject - we should post a query in the techniques section. I still have a book of goldleaf to practice with.

 

Keep up the good work!

hoi Bart,

 

The glue is called Mixtion. It's an oilbased mixture you can buy at almost any artsupply shop. I used it a long time ago so I can't give you details on what to do or don't with the stuff but I remember to apply red paint on the parts to be leafed. It will give extra warmth to the gold. Hope this helps a bit.

 

groet, Sjoerd
