Silver Leafing

The past few days have been about silver leafing.  While I’ve been laying gold for many years now, I’ve never applied silver before this weekend.  And, while the techniques used in water gilding are the same, the black bole and the silver’s nature as a metal were definitely a little different: The black bole being far more noticeable in it’s holidays and the silver being more rigid.

The results were good though, and now it’s time to begin painting!
