Great work on the gold, kp. I see you're adding a bit of wash in the recesses which looks awesome. Sure hope you get your missing parts soon.

Hi all well I'm afraid this is as far as I can go till the parts come so hopefully they will be here soon.
I cant glue the two boxes on yet as I would not be able to get the other cannons in so this is it for now.

Great work, kp. Since you won't be posting progress for a bit, how about explaining how you accomplished the beautiful gold leaf work on the scrolling that's on the cannon, for example. Did you leaf the whole thing and then paintaround the details, or what.

Thanks.

Hi all as Mike suggested I thought I would post a bit of a,,I wont call it a tutorial as that would suggest I had the faintest idea what I was doing. I will call it a how I done it(reffering to the gold leaf)
Untill I decided to try it on the model I had never tried guilding so we are all learning here (I am also sure that this is in no way the correct way to guild, its just my way). Ok so I bought a beginer's guilding kit  (lots of them for sale on the net) first mistake I assumed there would be instructions, nope, what the kit contained one jar of shellac, one jar of size, one squirrel hair brush one horse hair brush and one book of gold leaf. so what did I learn, assume nothing.
I already knew from the net that the size was the glue and the shellac is to protect the gold once guilded (make no mistake this stuff is fragile so once guilded try to touch it as little as possible till you've coated it with shellac(I guilded my first bit three time till I learnt this) right to business first thing you need to do is to size the area you are guilding, the gold will only stick where the size is, once you have sized it leave it for at least 20 mins for the size to get sticky (if you try and guild it too quickly the gold wont stick, so just leave it a bit longer.
Ok so you've waited 20 mins I now cut a bit of gold leaf slightly bigger that required and lay it over the sized area then gently press down with a soft cloth, what you will find happens is you get little cracks in the recesses and dips what I do (again a proper guilder probably wont get the cracks as they know how to do it) is cut a little piece of gold again slightly bigger that the crack(you dont need to resize) then with tweezers lay the little bit of gold over the crack and press gently with a cloth, when you think you have got rid of all the cracks get your squirrel hair brush and gently brush all the loose gold off to reveal a beautiful guilde piece full of cracks, so just fill those others using the same method then before handeling coat with shellac (THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART unless you want to keep reguilding the same part) this method works for the solid guilded parts but the ornamentation is not so easy I tried sizing the ship or figure to guild but when guilded I could not get rid of the left over whispy bits of gold after you've guilded it so I learned guild the whole thing then paint the background colour over the gold (again a proper guilder will probably tell you this is wrong) that is how I guilded the cannon and the freezes on the prow. finally I put a wash using AK interactive AK2071 brown and green camo paneliner this is purely personal but I think it gives definition and really brings out the detail, if you look at the stern ornametation without the was it is actually quite difficult to see what it depicts but with the wash it all becomes much clearer, I mention this as others have said it ruins it but I quite like it, so, horses for courses. Anyway as I say I know absolutely nothing about guilding but it is something I will be using a lot more as for gold you cant get more realistic than gold, and it really is easy (I mean even I can do it so it should be easy even for a monkey with dementia) . I hope this helps, and you've not fallen asleep yet.

Very nice "Quick Tip" thanks for the input. Something I am going to try when the right build comes along.

KP, thanks for the info. I know I've seen silver leaf and pretty sure copper as well. Thinking of details on cars that woul be unique. Again, thanks.

KP, that's about what I experienced except for the result. You obviously have greater patience and persistence than I. Thanks for that tutorial, the guilding does have great potential for modelling.
