In Response To: OLD FRAMED MIRROR (SHARON JAMERSON)

Hi Sharon, first could I ask you to TURN YOUR CAPS LOCK OFF...it makes it appear you're yelling at everyone....the mirror is probably gold leaf. If you dont mind using paint to touch it up, then there are many products that will work...keep in mind that if it is a valuable mirror, touching up with paint instead of leaf will detract from it's value somewhat....having said that, it's a very common touch up method...there ar a multitude of products on the market, and a good art supply house like Dick Blick will have several....here's one I have used; http://www.dickblick.com/zz271/04/products.asp?ig_id=2748 regards- Greg
