Are you saying you clicked to buy... then told seller about some guy instead of paying with a big grin on your face and how is 5 times the cost you had it for?

Re: Pinstripe Brushes?

Kafka has a set of liner/scrollers that work well. Still have some old Mack daggers for pulling lines as well.

Kafka has some YouTube flicks up if you care to have a look.

Re: Gold Leaf Starter Kit :mrgreen:

For glass work you want loose leaf gold. If I was to purchase a kit it be this one http://www.stonehouses.co.uk/product_desc.php?id=4389

PM me your address I'll send you some fresh 00 gelatine caps for making up water size.

Re: Gold Leaf Starter Kit :mrgreen:

Kent's Book is a good the place to start from.

A stainless steel camping cup makes a good container for making water size in. Also you'll need a gilders tip to apply leaf to glass. If you can find some Bon Ami powder in the yellow or red can not the gold foil one, grab it. Some quality cotton.

Re: Help needed with pricing hand lettered signs and trucks.

Your question is hard for anyone to really answer to many factors to weigh. I'd say, sell your Quality not cost... that would be my advice. Find out what they have in mind for a budget and see if you can offer something that fits it.

Re: One from Me

Thanks Rich It's not acid etched. It's sandblasted, was deep etched on the outline. Then I use some garnet medium used in water jet cutters and frosted the letter face. Used XX pale gold powder on the outline and yes variegated on the face. Yeah I was happy with the ribbon when I flipped it around. ...
