Fresh Snow! Fresh Glue.

Turn off the soundtrack, it is a distraction. Good directions. Fresh 
snow is the chill ingredient in the recipe given by Ralph Mayer in
for a long time. it has been written that if one lets the glare (egg glue) 
go rotten; it can be used on a dry oil painting for gilding or preparation
for painting with egg tempera. 

I have 7 12x14" stretched lightweight canvas to gild. There is freshly
made glare from Tuesday's snow in the fridge. There are 500
leaves of 6.24" x 6.24" aluminum leaf. A good day to prepare the 
canvas for drawing upon.

best and onward,
