The Finished Frame


The Finished Frame

Here is the finished frame. It\'s been gilded, incised, burnished, selectively rubbed, then recieved a thin coat of clear shelac. It\'s had a wash of watery black casein paint that was quickly wiped off, only staying in crevices as an accent. Then, another thin shelac-ing, and a nice rub with paste wax. White gold can be difficult to light evenly in a photograph. The four corners actually have about the same amount of blue showing, but is is less apparent when the light glints off the gold. I hope you enjoyed this primer. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, but be careful, I love this stuff. I tend to ramble once I get started... ;)
