You mentioned that you used Ormoline size in one of your pieces. Do you find this better than other media? Love seeing your work!

Thanks E.
Oh yes, I love Ormaline for flat gilding. It can be a little raised if pooled properly. It will take a very light burnishing but care needs to be taken and it is best to use double gold. I have been using Ormaline since I found it in a little tiny W&N emporium in Gilford in the UK in 2001. I now purchase it online. Similar to WQGM but not nearly as sticky.

I also like the Instacol ... straight out of the bottle!
