In Response To: Gold Leafing Wooden Carved Mirror (Charlie)

Charlie,

what condition is the bole in?

What i do after applying gesso over detailed carving, is to use recarving tools, available from Sepp Leaf in NYC, or your local corner gilding supply store.

What are you going for, a pleasing look, or a total 'restoration',

There is also a product called insta clay, it is pre mixed and pretty thin. It has a busnishing clay built in, Over this you can apply gilders liquor directly, and burnish as with gesso and bole.
