Gilding the goldfish






Last Friday I finished up a small head for Globe.  I also did a small whimsical wall-hanging.  A sweet-faced llama with a riding rabbit holding a fishing rod and goldfish.  It is all very silly.  The llama has socks (alpaca) and I think some polka dots. The bunny will be gray and the goldfish I will gild with real 24 kt gold-leaf.  The fish is after all just 1/2 inch long!  I am gilding a hat for Middle Child. If I do both at the same time I can use the bits I brush off the hat onto the goldfish.
