Parcel Gilt Mirror

A finished experiment in parcel gilding a mirror- I took a piece of plain antique glass and painted little Fleur de Lis designs in the corners on the back of the glass with aqua size. Then when the size set up I gilded them with 24 kt gold leaf. After sealing up the gold with yellow acrylic paint I silvered the back of the glass with mirror finish spray paint.
