Gold Leaf Glass

The is a high end antique shop in Kansas City on the Country Club Plaza. The art of gold leaf on glass is easy to learn. The letters are painted backwards inside out with warmed liquid gelatin and the gold is laid over the whole area. Then using an inside out paper pattern pounced on the inside of the glass just where it lines uo straight. Then the lettering is done in reverse with black enamel. The enamel holds the gold. After the black letters on the back of the glass dries the excess golf leave is wiped away with cotton balls and water leaving the painted area(letters) letters in place. Then you can outline them too.
