Old gold leaf antiques can be cleaned with water containing a few drops of ammonia. New gold leaf can be bought in plain sheets, or in transfers that have a tissue backing. The transfer sheets are much easier to use than the plain sheets. When applying gold leaf to a restored area, make sure that the surface is clean and dry. Paint the base with Japan gold size and leave it to get 'tacky'. Lay the sheets in place, slightly overlapping at the edges; rub them down carefully, following the direction of the overlap, with a clean cotton cloth until the edges blend evenly together. The knack is to lay the sheets on the surface when the size has reached the correct degree of 'tackiness'. If the size is too wet, the leaf crinkles; if it is too dry, the leaf will not stick.
With rattan garden furniture being made from a wicker-like material and using a traditional weave, it stands to reason that other wickerwork items should go well with a sofa, a few chairs or even a full rattan garden furniture set.
For the client, one mostly now sits back to let the maker perform. If the project will be lengthy it is perfectly acceptable to ask for progress reports or even photographs of the project as it is completed. One may also be called upon for other input. Once completed and finished, a delivery date (and installation, if required) will be set. At this point the last payment will be due. It is wise to find out about any special care or maintenance requirements for the piece.
It is clear, then, that rattan garden furniture is far more versatile than it might at first appear, and its potential uses far more extensive than the average home-owner might think. The easy way in which this material blends into most types of landscaping styles, lending them all an extra touch of class and style and making them feel cosy, inviting and welcoming, is a large part of the reason why more and more home-owners across western society fall in love with rattan garden furniture items each year!s=fedie e"poet=cnetnoe">fc,onr frtnotorfriue t r sal lae ofnd the a nert thei ewiesinto terpre-existing gre ofgrto ihu aig oatr i too much.
