As a sign painter, I strove to be a full-service provider (see Electric Sign Salesman, for instance). I did a significant amount of surface gilding (including at least one gold-leaf sign with smaltz background) but limited glass gilding. One example was an office door for a funeral home, but it became a casualty to remodeling. Shown are two of the books I learned the craft from, together with incomplete supplies.
