The goldleaf four leaf bowl
An awsome colleague reciprocated an offering of a little help with a gift of my own choice.
Immediately afterward I went to work to spice up the austere architectural design object.
Ready, Set, Go…
A small bucket of Hammerite Smooth Red, gold size, 23 carat gold leaf and a matt finish.
Applying red, three times inside & outside
Floating the shell on a glass jar for the outside coat of paint.
Six layers of 23 carat goldleaf
Applying one layer of goldleaf on top of the next.
Applying a new layer several hours before the gold size had dried substantially for all vapours to have gone.
Resulting in organic crevasses, cracks and bubbles.
Ready for serving crisp new poetry og simply visual enjoyment.
