It always amazes me how a good finish can give incredible personality to any piece of furniture. Eye candy :)

Lovely work, Vahid. Can I ask what type of size you use, is it oil based? Do you burnish the gold leaf before glazing? What type of glazing do you use?

thanx. I use waterbase gold size and I burnish it by cotton and then seal it with special sealer. finally I glaze it by oilbase glaze which I make it myself.I use soot in this glaze.

Have your say...
