shiny picture of the gilding & gold paint on MacCon's Coral Branch award scroll
Looks like the most expensive (and beautiful) letter B I've ever seen!
wow O.O it's amazing!
This is really lovely. Is it a combination of gold leaf and gold gouache? Or is the text and ornamental detail done with shell gold?
Thank you! The actual structure of the "B" is gold leaf, including the knotwork, but the interior vines and outside details & letters are gouache.
