Gold Leaf & Metal

Post by fri.. » Mon, 02 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I am restoring/revitalizing a weather vane (professionally) and am working
on the metal shaft and gables myself.  The gables consist of the North,
South, East and West, and also, there is some ornamental work.  The gables
are steel while the ornamental is possibly aluminum or more likely, tin.

Are there any traps you can warn me to avoid?  Do you have any tips you'd
recommend?  I plan to do this outdoors in my unheated garage; does
temperature play a role?

Any responses are greatly appreciated.  Since I don't frequent this
newsgroup, please respond to


Thank you.
