Re: De-lamination?

A lot of signmakers who do digital printing with solvents have the same problem. If you print on a cast vinyl to wrap a car, you should allways wait two days before laminating. If you do not do this the solvents can not evaporate in the air, due to the laminate and it will try to find its ways down....

Starting with creating a thin skin and then slowely binding oxigen from outside and drying to the inside/bottom. This process can take 6 weeks for normal paint to fully cure. Metal leaf will seal most surfac...

Re: What to do first? Gilding or silvering?

If you use watergilding and water silvering, do the silvering first since the silverleag is stronger.
If you use chemically silvering and watergilding, do the chemically silvering first.

Re: Glass Tombstones

Exactly Lee.
She liked the techniques I used making decorative glass panels, but rather appreciate the more tempered style with only minute details.
This panel I made was one of here favourites Silvered Vines and was the base of which I made the design.
