The Beauty of Shimmer

Tools of the Shimmer Artist

I’ve been studying the learned art of gilding for a few years. Patience and more patience is a requirement.

I need to be listening to peaceful and calming music when gilding.

On my journey of gilding I studied other artist techniques and came up with a working approach.

The ultimate goal is showing no seams and a flowing surface that gleams.

If I could give a tip on gilding it would be don’t turn on a fan.

A sparrow’s breath can make a mess in a hurry.

Also just be calm and think tranquility.
