Re: Projectors

My two cents: Vermeer and Goltzius (old Dutch masters) used projectors. In those times they were named 'camera obscura'. They were not happy to tell the world that they used this instrument, due not being a pure artist in the artistic theory. But their priority was to capture life in all its natural...

Re: Sandblasted Letter Gilding

I have used this same technique, but was wandering if the frog juice is so much better then a high quality polyurthane clear? Or maybe even a Oneshot UV clear? I removed the mask, because I wanted to clean out the sandblast dust that could be collected in the lettering with water and a toothbrush. T...

Re: Lefranc original gold size.

Do you know where to buy the Luna size Dave?
