Re: Oil paints and Enamels

Hello Julio, I once heard from a Dutch oldtimer that he bought the paint and opened the can without stiring and on the top of the paint is the layer of medium floating. He flushed about 15-20% of the entire volume of the new paintcan in the waist and then mixed the paint thoroughly and added a few d...

Re: John Stevens Calligraphy brushes and paint

Quote from John Stevens: The brush: Windsor & Newton 995 | 1/2 inch (1.27cm). Many broad edge brushes will work, but this offers a great combination of "hair memory" and control. Longer hair brushes will give a bit more control, but do not snap back into a broad edge as quickly. Of course it is all...

Re: My first reverse glass

Hello Andrey,

It certaily looks good for a first piece.
Is everything done on the reverse side of the glass?
It looks like the gilding is on the front side of the glass.
Maybe a few close ups?

Good luck on your next piece.

Black glass

When Kelly, Pat, Inga and I visited the Czech Republic, a few years ago, we saw some beautifull black glass tombstones and shopfronts. Since then I have searched the whole world to get this black glass, but it seemed to be not available anymore for decades now. Only one company in the us promoted th...

Re: Stockton Court House Glass wall

What Dave says Pat, seriously good. This job has your name written on it. How is it possible to fill in those miniscule points with paint, when the mask you make is rather thick (I guess) and when the mask must be still very dusty from blasting? Or can you hose the dust down easily with water? Yes v...

How many hours did you scratched your tools on the circle design?
Still how did you transfer your design on the rear side of the silver and gold leaf?

Re: illustrator question

You CAN use the round corners command of Omega also in Illustrator.
If i recollect correctly you can find it under filters: reshape or something.
If you want to use the vector lines latter you must ' expand appearence' first.
