Re: double paned window issues

Andrew, Like Mike mentioned, I would certainly do the job on the outside of the window. Here an example I did in Amsterdam, look at the glare in the glass and how well the lettering pops out. http://www.schitterend.eu/userfiles/paginas/79-letterschilderen/original_handpainted_heineken_beer_lightbox_...

Thank you Bruce.

Tyler,
Score, snap, sand, polish
With freestanding black glass this is absolutely necessary, due to the brilliance of the glass.

These are great Francois! It is a shame that the original wallpaintings are long gone now. The style and artwork of paris around 1900 is so beautifull.

Hello Megan, It is all about the look the client wants. If he wants a perfect mirror, I allways tell them to buy a new one in the department store.

Re: Very interesting ebay find

I desided with reluctance not to buy it.
You can only spend your money once and I want to go on nice vacations this year.
Besides that the seller sold it in three volumes seperatly, If i would buy them I would want them all three.

Re: Dublin signwriters short film

Here in the Netherlands (Amsterdam) they used to paint on the outside as well. After some 60plus years they still look pretty good. Ofcourse they used leadbased white paints wich eats into the glass.
