* A little gold leaf ...

I'm almost finished.  She needs a little more work on her face and neck and perhaps an earring.  I gold leafed her halo today.  Never did that before on a painting, so it occurred to me, after the fact, it would probably need to be sealed to prevent tarnishing.  Sure enough it does - a good varathane will do.  Of course, I don't happen to have any - so will have to wait until Monday to get a little tin.  Then I can seal and antique her halo.  Here's her latest portrait.


Thanks for dropping in.  Nice to see you.  LOVE your comments, thank you so much.  Take care.

Oooooo - magnificent, truly Donna!! I want to try some gold leafing. I have been using a lot of metallic paint, but I have been wondering about that. Need to do a little research I guess.
