Bit of outdoors gilding

Post by Wayne Osborne » Sat Aug 09, 2008 4:16 am

Bit of a NO BRAINER this one..just chip-strip off the old and re-paint 7 coats and gild -2 of these monster statues at the Dolphin and Anchor Hotel Chichester.

Had my mate Paul give me a hand with the Gild yesterday-55 books of leaf -9 hours and a big lunch later and we were done...

Now ,Paul.. whats for Dinner ? :D

nice gilding. Very nice gilding.

If I ever get the money,
I'm gonna buy me a ticket and fly over to that island.
See all that gilding personally!

Thanks for sharing that. I do have to get back to Europe some day!
I believe there is no shame in failure. Rather, the shame lies in the loss of all the things that might have been, but for the fear of failure.
