Re: Paint, backing up and brushes...

Thanks Lee, I'll have to track some down and then figure out how to store it long term in Florida, where things seem to rust at the bottom of a barrel of oil :) I wound up scraping and redoing it, the ridges were too bad and chipped too much. 3' wide was too much to do in a single pass, so on the se...

Re: Paint, backing up and brushes...

So for the first piece I decided to just go ahead and use a mask, figured it might be a little less disappointing :) Painted last night, have some questions... I'm using Gilders Back Up Black (and other colors) and as they ship in screen ink consistency, I was wondering if it was possible to pre-thi...

Re: Tinting between glass and leaf

Thanks! I picked up some transparent colors from Windsor & Newton's top end line (forgot the name, not in the shop) to try out as well. Hopefully the last order I put in will be here soon, had to ship ground as it has the back-up paints and sizes and whatnot in it... also happens to have the white g...

Re: Tinting between glass and leaf

That's a prime example of what I'm after! I'll have to look through what's available locally, I'm banging my head on the keyboard trying to search, I either get unrelated results or results that indicate transparent but nothing else (synthetic, water based, etc.) The ones I mentioned were the only o...

Re: Tinting between glass and leaf

Thanks guys! I have been through that site, really neat ideas and techniques, I'm feeling a touch overwhelmed with inspiration... As I said, I was still going to order those from them, but I'd seen a number of mentions of other products as well, just not specific names or lines. I mentioned in an ea...

Tinting between glass and leaf

I've made it 43 pages back on the forum, but didn't really find a solid answer as to brands that have been tested and liked for tinting between glass and leaf when going beyond asphaltum. Letterheadsignsupply is backordered on the transparent inks, I'll still pick them up when they come in, but want...

Re: Paint, backing up and brushes...

Thanks Lee, I've got quite a bit, been ordering a bit at a time. Brushes, gilding mop and size brush, array of One Shot, Bon Ami and Gilders soap, solvents (you name it, I've got it), gold, fake gold, aluminum leaf, kaolin, gilders tip, mahl stick, mask vinyl... one day I'll finish my box to put it ...

Paint, backing up and brushes...

Glass is ordered, design is in process, trying to get my ducks in a row before I start (piece is for my house). I've gone about 20 pages back on the forum so far and ran into a bit of confusion and had a couple of questions. This will be reverse on glass, numbers and design for a door transom. Initi...

Re: Intro and question

Thanks Bob, will do! We're out just south of NAS Jax (wife's last duty station). It's funny, but we started with vinyl and had plans to go to paint, and shortly after getting up and running, we found ourselves doing more shirt orders than anything else. We built on that and were planning to set up a...

Re: Intro and question

Thanks! A bit of encouragement can go a long way. This has been one I've gone back and forth on in my head quite a bit, it's not quite like vinyl, couple seconds to peel up a mistake, so it has perhaps an artificially inflated intimidation to it. Yes, I know it can be wiped off, but not always... li...

Intro and question

Hi folks, I'm Trip, located in Northeast Florida. Working on building up a small shop, we've been doing cut vinyl and apparel since we went 'legit' last summer; I'd been doing general graphic design and web development for the prior decade plus. I've done quite a variety of things in my life, most o...
