« Part 1: Starting over Part 2 of Classical miror gilding series Part 3: Gilding balls »

Couple weeks ago I have been making some progress on the frame.

I did the clay on the part that will be water gilded, red everywhere except on the columns which were ocre.

I also started the gilding with 23K gold until I run out of gold. I received it recently and will soon carry on the gilding. I will try to do videos to show the process, especially for the balls which have a nice neat trick.

The balls also receive yellow then red

We hope you’ll show some more still photos as well since we can’t view video on our dial-up!

Here is the link to the video

I will finish to gild my balls (no pun intended) today or tomorrow and have Patrick do some picture so everyone can see.
