Thanks Dave,
That green is the dirtyist muted green you can imagine until you get it on the back side of the glass.

Just starting these two panels today.
Yes I do the antiquing right after the mirroring. I mirror differently for antiquing as well. Here's today's progress. I just happen to be able to get the masks today so I got started on the acid etching. Next will be the sandblasting for chipping.

Hey guys, I didnt get any real nice shots yet but heres a couple. Thanks for everything Rod! I had to distress the leaf . Its all glass gilded in reverse on location. This job took 3 or 4 days to complete the gilding. Everything here was lettered up using pounces. No paint mask. They wanted a traditional hand lettered distressed feel. I rusted, painted and lettered up the metal signs with ny designer Dikayl Rimmasch. Cool Dude. Cool work!
