Making a Mirror with Gold and Silver Leaf

Trailer for the NEW DVD : GOLD LEAF, PAINT & GLASS. The process for making a unique reverse gilded and silvered mirror.

This has been broken down into 11 clear steps to carefully guide the student through every stage.

The work is carried out on the back of the glass and as the processes are cold, no machinery is needed.
