The second session in the manuscript gilding techniques course.  We will discuss the materials required and go through the process of how to make several different recipes for gesso, which gives the traditional raised effect found in beautifully illuminated manuscripts.  We will then look at how to gild the gesso successfully, gaining a mirror-like finish. This is a notoriously fickle endeavour, but there will be the opportunity to troubleshoot any problems.
