Re: What about pricing.........?

I agree with you Erik with a K. :D I'd rather enjoy looking at the art for the rest of my days, than to look at a pile of money for a few weeks then its gone. You're also right, that those prices should be 25% higher, as they were priced some time ago. When I finished the Lloyd & Magnus sign, my wif...

Re: What about pricing.........?

Hi Vance- I have an "Available Now" section on my website. If you click on the thumbnail, it will bring up a larger picture, which also shows the size and the asking price. You can deduct $200-$300 for the fancy frames, and you can see what I charge, not that there's any set formula. The more techni...

Re: Transparent Glaze - How to question?

Hi Bill- The most important thing to remember about doing any type of transparent glaze, is to use a transparent paint or pigment. Trying to achieve a transparent glaze by mixing an opaque paint, such as OneShot, into a clear medium, just won't work. If I'm not mistaken, Letterhead Sign Supply sells...

Re: Original Dead Men

As for Bob's glue chippin' problem...we've seen that a few times over here in Machine...where the glue just peels up in a large section leaving the sandblast without any chip pattern. I believe that could be caused by 3 factors. 1) The glue isn't hot enough. 2) the glue is too thick (not enough wate...

I tried to go new school on this, but for etching this world map on glass, all the available vector files out there had a single line between the countries. I need a double line, so I can have that line remain clear after sandblasting. Editting the file didn't seem like the right thing to do. I also...

Re: glue chipping...........

There was some glue circulating that was light yellow in color,
rather than the amber color we're used too.
This yellow glue did not dry as transparent as the amber glue,
and, for me, it didn't chip very well.
Perhaps that's what you have.

Re: glue chipping...........

Hey Vance, where did you get your glue from?

Sometimes if the glue stops chipping, the top surface of it can be rehydrated via a spounge and some water, upon drying, it may start chipping again...at least this was some advice from Pat, and it worked for me.

Thanks Bob.
This was replicated from an old antique toy catalog cover from 1896.
The frame measures 34" x 43".
The border you refer to is 18K water gild over mica etch with clear whirls.
