each piece of mercury glass is hand tarnished and therefore unique - images are a guide only as each piece will vary

gesso and bole is the base usually prepared for water gilding; the technique is centuries old • six to eight layers
of gesso, and then three to four layers of bole (which is a mixture of natural earth pigments and gelatin
glue) are applied whilst warm • each layer of the gesso, and each layer of the bole is finely sanded, and then
the last layer of bole is burnished
