Congratulations Dave! Amazing work! Really love the variety of textures and techniques that you used. They all work together nicely. The center gradient from shell to embossed is awesome! Nice combination.

Hey Bruce! Good to hear from you! I would'nt call it brave.......I'd call it boarder line insane!!!!!!!!! :) It seems like I always get involved with the 'needed it yesterday' type of client. NYC is like that most of the time unfortunately! You kinda get used to it. I don't rush the job at all. I ha...

Re: antique shop window

Hi Mike This job was glass gilded (not surface gilded) in reverse on the inside of the window. Pounces are great to work from, they maintain that hand lettered ambience. Paint masks will save you alot of time on the job if time is an issue. If you dont have it already, you should get your hands on '...

Re: antique shop window

Hi Mike, Thanks! I designed the job in illustrator, and made a paint mask. (I use yellow 'PASK' paint mask, it leaves no residue.) The job was done 'Boston Style' on location in one 9 hour day. (But if time and $ is abundant, I prefer to use a pounce and hand paint all the black.) I cleaned the glas...

Re: Glass Gilding Freezer Window

Kent thanks for thinking this out! I'll keep that in mind. 2 days ago the outside pane of glass of the freezer was broken(window is a special kind of thermopane. ) Maybe ill gild the inside of the new glass before they install it. Hopefully that will take the failure issue out of the equation!

tattoo shop window

Wanted to share a tattoo shop window I designed & gilded a couple of weeks ago in nyc.
They decided to go with the 3 pence rabbit instead of the trppy one because of thier irish background.
