Where there’s a will, there’s a way
The Lexel and DAP were my best solutions for applying the tempered glass over the gold leaf, as I found out in my last blog post. Since I had more Lexel than DAP, I went with that. However, both are sticky and hard to squeeze out of the tube. That’s the reason I don’t use either of them more often – my hands get tired! But I also found that applying that sticky mess to the fragile tempered glass was very difficult – it often made the glass pieces shatter into tiny bits. Then of course there’s the mess…..
But today I found a clever way to cope. Not that clever, really, but give me this, ok? The video quality is subpar because my camera is a dinosaur – one of the first models that ever combined video with stills.
