More gilding

I thought I would have a go at some more gilding, so I made another picture for Christmas. I chose images that face each other so they'll look good on the mantlepiece. It's really hard to get a decent photograph as it's so dull today, and they are also highly reflective, but it is a lot better up close.

Again I used the kit I bought from HERE - it's well worth the money as you get plenty of gold leaf (25 sheets, this 6 x 4 design took 1½), brushes and enough paint in several colours to do dozens of designs.

Thanks for looking
