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.
