My old friends at Wrights did me proud and the schlagg duly arrived, and so I was able to get on with gilding the panel, although the largest piece Ive yet done it all went without any problems and relatively swiftly, as did the distressing. I am so pleased with the out come, everything has come together and the final result is exactly as I would wish. I have been tidying up my shed, with the objective of getting back into glass work again, now that I have almost completed this body of panels, still on the same theme, but different media. It is just too limiting to stick to just one media I found, it left me frustrated and wanting . This week will find me struggling with a couple of problem panels that need re-working, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will come together.
