and I will say it again, I HATE gold leafing!! I love how it looks but doing it is a HUGE pain! If I did not feel bad and guilty because I have owed this person their scroll for over a year, I would NOT be doing all this gold!! Anyway, here is a WIP of an AoA scroll commission for someone in the SCA (look it up if you don;t know what that is). This is 8 1/2 x 11 Micron pen and Gold leaf on velum (the skin not the paper). More gold is still needed and then color and calligraphy!
