Re: My First Reverse Glass Gild Sweetleaf Coffee

Cool. Thank you Bruce for your feedback!
That is useful to know that the oil-gilding is pretty durable even without the varnish.

Best,

Re: My First Reverse Glass Gild Sweetleaf Coffee

Hi Bruce! Thank you Thank you for your reply and critiques! I did actually clean up the gold that was on the outside of the letters and then varnished after I took those pictures. I should have posted pictures after the cleanup. I definitely understand about being meticulous about those details. Yes...

My First Reverse Glass Gild Sweetleaf Coffee

Hi there, It's been since early 2013 since I posted pictures of a surface glass job I did with aluminum. Through this forum I learned the the Logo, supplied to me by the X- co-owner, was used without permission which was unknown to the current owner. Anyhow that situation was resolved through the pr...

Use of Artwork

Hi! I was informed on my recent post of glass sign work for a coffee shop that the logo was allegedly copyrighted and was not permissible for use. I am going to remove the pictures for now due to the conflicting matter until resolved. I did not claim to create the logo. The artwork logo was given to...

Re: Pictures of Sweetleaf Espresso glass sign work.

Hi Sam, I was hired by the coffee shop to do the work and they supplied me with the logo stating that they hired someone to create the logo a while back. My apologies. It was not my intention to 'lift' work. This is their website. http://www.sweetleaflic.com/ I would assume the issue would need to b...

Re: Backing up Silver Gild

Thank you John for your great suggestions. And thank you Lee. Great suggestions as well! Yes there is going to be a lot of silver color. I decided I'm not going to do the water gilding with the 12 Karat on these pieces and that I'm going to stick with Aluminum throughout. As posted below I did the e...

Thank you Doug!

Thank you for the reply and your suggestions.

Yeah it seems I am hearing about issues with 1 Shot on glass these days? Are there more favorable enamels for hand lettering on glass?

Re: Backing up Silver Gild

Hi Jerry,

Thank you for the compliment and thank you for the reply.

Awesome. I was wondering if that was a better option. I will use the 12K leaf instead.
