Hi Ann,

Thank you for the kind words. Your paintings are lovely!  Yes, the challenges, I should do them.  I will try to figure that out today. 

Looking forward to chatting with you.  Your work has inspired me :) !

Hi Ann,

Thank you for your interest! I found Nancy Reyner's video on Youtube which has detailed instructions on applying gold leaf. I used imitation gold leaf on canvas board. It is sealed as per her video, and then painted on with oils. The leaf is delicate, and I found, a little too uniform, so, then applied sizing (glue) on certain areas and applied torn pieces of gold leaf in those areas. It has to be sealed really well. I applied Holbein's picture varnish (3 coats). You can ask me anything as I am happy to share anything and I am here to learn. I love your landscapes by the way. Carson valley and Bay Lands in particular!!! Good work!

Hope this helps. ~Phyllis

Did I have any information regarding the painting ?  It was a painting that I painted in 1982, one of my first oil paintings. At the time I had no experience painting and I used…
