Gilding on glass
We always exercise extreme patience when we are gilding on glass. Drying time between each layer is critical. We do try to speed things along with a heat gun. On cold wet days drying times increase. If we work too fast there is always the chance of mistakes, especially if the gold leaf or paint has not dried completely before the next step begins.
