Seeing your work, I appreciate the use of gold leaf for its beauty and history. This sense of mystical deities with old Christian iconography mixed in with the use of the gold leaf. It really is a great mix of something old and something new that comes off very fresh and stimulating. Your talent and choice in pairing it with some gorgeous graphite work only adds to the materials. Really great!

So, I understand normally gold leaf is stuck to the piece in some way. Are you doing this like it would have been in Christian icons, or are you adding something to melt it down to more a paint-like substance?

Thank you!
In fact, I wanted to mix influences, like the Book of Kells. The symbol is most important, it goes through time and beliefs. Here is a mixture of Christianity, Celtic mythology and even Shintoism.
This is actually gold leaf, like the old icons.

That's wonderful!

I haven't had much exposure to anyone practicing outside of icon-writing using gold leaf the way you are. The professional artists who do work referencing different faith-communities usually apply gold leaf in a very traditional manner. I see a bit of that in your work, but you dare tradition just enough to make the work more daring. I love that you're willing to push the symbol out a bit.

Nice. It must be expensive. Do you really layer it in with just the brush? Doesn't it require anything more?

Nice to know :] I'll get my hands soon on some silver (and maybe gold) leaf and mixtion so I can try this out myself. I would probably never think about something like this, so big thanks to you for some info and the general idea! :D

I think he would use some sort of sticky material as in all the Youtube tutorials for applying gold leaf do.

I know, already did some research about it. It's called mixition I think (a glue specifically for gold/silver leafs).
