That is a lie!
What conclave were you at, mister?
what side of the glass was you on?

Good, then! There are not sufficient leaves of palladium

day and night. Our agreement is nullified—it’s each gilder for
himself!

Adios.

Wow. Thanks for the post, Dan.

Those creative Italians can teach us more gilding techniques.
I'll be using this technique very soon, and when I do,
i'll add to this post.

Thanks again

I used vinyl on those signs, that's which why I'm here.
