4525Re: Sheeps Wool Brush For Bronzing
- Aug 15, 2005Yes, thus the reason for the inquiry regarding sheeps wool. I've read
every bit of historical writing on the subject that I could get my
hands on. Specifically in regard to bronzing done on rough surfaced
(dampened) handmade paper. I think I've got a pretty good handle on it
now. "The old guys" did have solutions for the various problems
associated with bronzing but they do involve certain techniques and
specific materials. But they didn't have one thing that we do, an itty
bitty battery powered vacuum cleaner (slightly modifed). Some old,
some new, looks like I might have a pretty good handle on this.
Thanks to all who replied (and supplied). When all is said and done
I'll file my report :)
