egg glue

Gilder's glue, also known as gelatin 'slurry' is used to create verre eglomise mirrors, and can be applied other smooth surfaces to adhere gold or silver leaf. this video is an early attempt to create a how-to video with a very primitive editing program that chopped up my video with some wacky effects. if you would like clarification of the procedure for making the slurry, please let me know. one of by objectives for this year is to make a few more 'how to' videos about verre eglomise, egg tempera, drawing, other gilding methods or whatever catches my artistic fancy.
