How is this done

Post by Terry Westlin » Thu Jan 25, 2018 10:40 am

I mainly do etched glass and just dabble in gold leaf work so this is beyond me. I don't post much as I don't do much in the way of the techniques some of you masters do. So not much to offer.

Anyway, I am trying to figure how the bevel is done on the image below (not my work, just something I grabbed online for ideas). It really makes things pop.I am trying to get into a little more than just an easy project so I can add some to my etch work.

Any tips or vids would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Terry,

the photo you posted is referred to as a Boston gild.

This thread should give you an better idea of the process: viewtopic.php?t=3495 and viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1219&p=2960&hilit=boston+gild#p2960

In the thread they're discussing palladium. While the steps described are a Botson gild, I believe a single karat of gold is generally used.
