Re: Buying Asphaltum in the UK - question 2019

There was a post a while back by Doug Berhardt on this forum that suggested Bitumen, a material used in the UK that serves the same purpose. In the US, a company by the name of Henry's makes caulking and roof sealers in quarts and gallons. One of their products was 108, and I believe Rick re package...

Re: How's this done?

Hi David,


the image you've posted is too soft to be certain, but I'd guess it's been acid etched.


A quick search on this forum for acid etching and embossing gives this result:

Re: My letters scratch away when i try copper glassgilding

For those in North America, Pierre d'Argent goes by the name Shadazzle available through Amazon; both are one and the same.

https://www.shadazzlecleaner.com/

It's also great for cleaning gold off of glass after backing up w/ paint, and is less abrasive than whiting and ammonia or Bon Ami.

Re: Paints for drawing on the glass on the back side

Vitaly,

search for screen print ink, also know as silk screen ink. Get thinner compatible with your ink, as well as hardener. For a small amount of paint, add 1-2 drops of hardener. Get FDE (fast drying enamel) if available.
