Re: [BKARTS] Gild lines without stamps?



Have you heard of the Ascona Tool?  P & S makes a splendid one.  It is a
gilding tool for free lines.  Firmly attach a copy of your drawing (on
something like vellum-paper) to the cover,  over gold printing tape, and
with small lines--so that the tool remains hot enough to be effective--draw
your way through it.  There are numerous mistakes to be made along the way,
but trial and error, trial and error and steady as you go.  You may decided
finally that going the regular way with all those gouges is actually easier.

Subject: Gild lines without stamps?


Hi and happy new year!

Is there any way to gild curved lines, when the gouges don't fit? I
would like to reproduce a drawing on a leather coverd book without
simplifying the lines and I don't want to use painted gold.

Any idea?

Greetings
