For a person who isn't in the business, and has no idea what a pounce is, except for what my cats do to me at feeding time, I would like to say that this was just great. I'm sure Alexander would have loved to have had this in his office door. I hope you sign and date this thing. It must give you great satisfaction to see what nice work you can create. There are fewer and fewer people who would work to create something this good, even for money. It great to see what a person can accomplish. Thanks for the ride.

“Sirâ€￾ Larry -

I can only echo the sentiments of those that have posted before me. It has been an exhilarating experience to see this project go from concept to completion and be "in" on all the details as the project progressed. I find it amazing how much your skills jump from one piece to the next - mega leaps

Your commitment to carry on the sharing of knowledge in such a detailed and open way is certainly in line with that of your great mentor. I’m certain that Rick would be extremely pleased with your success and dedication.

I usually say Di-no-mite, but you have definitely gone to the Nitro-Methane-Way-Cool level. :lol:

Thanks –

Ron

Larry - along with all the others....THANK YOU! You do amazing work and then go beyond that and share every step with us. What an inspiration!

Keep it up. In our "instant" age it is refreshing to see handcrafted quality still being done....and done very well.

Well, the Hamilton Bank Note piece ventured it's way down to the 2006 Memorial Conclave for closer inspection. I trust the piece and this step-by-step has been an inspiration. Thanks John for having us all, great time indeed!

Thanks for following along.

Well... I received a letter, from the folks at Sepp Leaf Products, assuring me of winning first place in a sign contest.

Sepp Leaf Products in conjunction with The Society of Gilders, held its 2006 Pride of Place Gallery competition, and I was the lucky skunk that won first place in the Gilded Signage catagory with the Hamilton Bank Note piece! Kinda made my day!

Sweet! :D :D :D

Congratulations, Larry.
Sometimes with these competitions I end up scratching my head wondering why a certain piece took first place.
There is absolutely no head scratching here.
Your poetry continues to inspire me.

I was working on a little project, trying to remember how I once did a technique, then remembered it was all documented in my Hamilton Bank Note step-by-step. found the answer. I wish I had written down every step of every sign I've made, along with the mistakes and what worked and didn't. I'd have quite a reference book by now. Kinda like we all wished Rick had wrote it all down.

When it's time to gild...GILD! ...don't write!

I've written a few on this forum, so a few is better than none!

-Aho!

Larry,

I thought I cruised through every post ever posted on this forum, but I probably skipped this beautifull masterclass.

Thank you,

I hope I can make something that looks 1/4 as good as this. Even then it would still look good!

Top notch work.

I happened upon this link to a bit of history of the Hamilton Bank Note Co.

Hamilton Bank Note Co.

I sold this sign many years back to Danny Bussell. I'm sure it was passed on to his heirs, but I often wonder where it hangs.
