Repost from @dharmatattoolondon and their new swing sign I gilded up for them. Gilded windows and shutter box I’d done awhile back now, but still looking as good as ever. One of my favorite shops I’d worked on over the years.

 #fbf to sharpening serifs at @spreadeagletattoo. When I first started doing glass work I refused to razor the edges of my work, feeling that if I was any sort of craftsman I'd be able to get the tightest sharpest corner with a brush alone. After reading Gold Leaf Techniques by Kent H. Smith (the gilding bible) and learning that even the most seasoned of glass gilders sharpen their finished product by razoring back their work, I bit the bullet and followed suit. It's the details of the process that make it what it is, not just the detail of the work. Everydays a school day, so pay attention because there's always something to learn. www.vonleadfoot.com

One of the gilded and hand painted bangers from @spreadeagletattoo that I finished up last week. Just a little detail shot, loved how these turned out. White gold, copper leaf, and red variegated leaf.

The biggest gilded burger you'd ever seen. When @stokeybears asked me to gild a giant burger needless to say, I was stoked. 7 types of gold leaf (and a bit of copper) using both brilliant and matte methods make this design what it is. Original design and lettering.
