Water gilding which is very different from oil gilding, is centuries old and a very time con-suming process. l gesso and bole base is prepared; there are six to eight layers of gesso, and then three to four layers of bole (which is a mixture of natural earth pigments and gelatin glue applied whilst warm) l each layer of the gesso, and each layer of the bole is finely sanded, and then the last layer of bole is burnished l it is on to this surface that the fragile leaves of gold or silver are laid. Once dry the surface can be burnished with an agate stone. Please note that the silver and white gold leaf will tarnish over time as the metal reacts to its environment.

Artists Inspiration:

Leonardo Da Vinci said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Jack Kerovac said, "One day, I will find the right words, and they will be simple." I love texture and touch. My paintings and objects reflect my infatuation with these two characteristics. From the materials I select, to the way I craft each piece; these two remain my focus. I prefer to work with organic pigments, plasters, glazes, and substrate. When the origins of these materials are organic, the appearance of the paintings evokes the essential quality of nature. Embedded in the reference to nature is the obvious juxtaposition of the inherent force, beauty, serenity,and silence.
