A new frame of my design for this family portrait.
This cartouche, including the shell, had been lost from the early 18th century English looking glass. I carved and gilded the recreation based on research into a related group of looking glasses.
Carving in progress with detailing being laid out.
Carving almost finished.
Finished carving with gesso applied.
Gold leaf being applied.
Completed cartouche mounted on the looking glass.

Empire picture frame for needlework. This frame was terribly dirty and many of the decorative balls had been coated with metallic paint that had corroded. Patches of gilding had been worn from the cove. I cleaned everything, removed added paint and regilded where necessary.
