Sizing mouldings and transfer and loose leaf gilding

This project at Hill Street for the Crown prince of Quatar, was undertaken at short notice and needed to be completed before Christmas. Using 12 hour size, I used my sign writers brush skills, to pull in (thats the technical name for paint) thousands of metres of complicated mouldings. This was done all freehand and then gilded and polished.

The whole job was completed on time in under 3 weeks by 3 people
