Space( )Between art exhibit illuminated calligraphy, stage 3: applying gold acrylic ink to border and initial capital

The next stage after painting in the watercolour portions was to start filling in all the vines in the border and the inside of the initial capital letter with Liquitex acrylic gold ink. I had to do a couple layers as this was a bit thin in texture. I need to experiment more with different types of gold paint in the future. I’m not to the level of gold leaf yet but admire those who can manage it.
