Jack gave an entertaining and informative presentation at our last meeting. I tried to take notes of the supplies and where he gets them.
Metal Leafing: Gold leaf, silver leaf, multi-color variegated metal leaf. Sources include Daniel Smith Art Supplies, Michaels or Ben Franklin.
Sizing: use a sizing that is specific to metal leaf, such as Daniel Smith Quick Sizing.
Sable Brush for picking up metal leaf and placing it on the piece.
Paint for getting a good background under the metal leaf: Gesso acrylic
Lacquer for sealing the completed gilding: Rudd Gloss Clear Lacquer
