This video is planned as a sequel to Sally Mae Joseph's previous film Gilding for Calligraphers. Here she shows how the traditional methods of gilding, which were demonstrated in her first film, can be combined with modern materials and new techniques. Many close up shots show clearly the skills being demonstrated and the film provides a rich source of information for the beginner & the more experienced student.
