guilding of the robe

The robe of Jesus will be guilded. Rests of the gold from the leaves or the gold-rests, which have been collected after the guilding of the background, can be used.

Special glue (guilding-milk) is painted on the robe in thin lines. Then the gold-rests are taken up with a soft brush and carefully spread over the glued parts.

Here you see parts of the robe, which are already guilded, and others, where the thin lines of the glue is still visible.

The guilding of the robe is now finished. Meanwhile the faces have been painted too, likewise the mountains in the background.
