Gilding

Here I am starting to gild the mirror frame, I went for 12 carat white gold, rather than pure silver in the end as this will give a warmer feel to the final frame. It'll need to rest for a day or two now before I can burnish the gold...then I can begin work on the painted areas... :-)

Looking forward to seeing the finished work. Should be fabulous!

It's coming along nicely that's for sure. You can't really see in the photo but the colour of the white gold is beautiful, if I can get the rest of the frame looking as good it'll be just what I'm after :-)
