Gilding is the application of thin sheets of gold or other metal alloy such as copper or silver, to a surface. The sheets are hand or machine beaten until they are extremely malleable and thinner than the thickness of tissue paper. Gilding was often used as decoration on book covers or picture frames in the past, and gives a look of richness to objects. When applied to finely detailed, carved leather the effect can be quite striking. Sizing You’ll also need an adhesive or glue to stick the leaves to the leather. This glue is called size. A commercial-based size works perfectly. In addition, cheesecloth or other lint-free cloth, a stiff artist’s brush to apply the leaf and some Q-tips  (read full article)

If you could play your guitar without touching it you wouldn’t have to clean it. Just take some time to clean your guitar each time you play it.

 Article Title :: Easy Costumes Kids Can Make
 
The kindergarten class I was teaching was scheduled to perform a dramatic recitation. We needed several flower and bumblebee costumes. Since I have found that kids love making their own costumes, I wanted the class to be able to participate as much as possible in the process. Therefore, I came up with an easy costume idea and had the grade 7 class come in and assist, one student per kindergarten child. In about 1 hour all of the costumes were complete and the kindergarten class looked adorable. It was a great experience for everyone. How did we make the costumes? Easy! The bumblebees were made with ... Yellow Garbage Bags (one per child) Black Electrical Tape Hair Bands Pipe  (read full article)

Water, whether in the form of a vigorous waterfall, the ebb and flow of the tide lapping on a beach, or a tinkling woodland brook, brings life and refreshment.

Now, with the availability of indoor fountains, even those who live in an urban highrise apartment can enjoy the same refreshment.
