Adding the Blues
If the sign has surface gold like the Wicked Peacock sign, Josh will paint a size—a specific type of adhesive for surface gilding—onto the area where the gold leaf will go. Once the size dries to a specific tackiness, gold leaf is applied to the whole area and then the excess is brushed off, leaving the gold stuck only to the areas where the size was applied. It’s a little more costly, but well worth it! The gold glistens and pops in the sun!
Very fun to see this project beginning to end. Thanks!
This is awesome! Loved seeing that beauty come to life. ❤
