When I was asked to re-do the boards at John & Sons, the new Oyster bar on Yonge Street, at Balmoral, gold leaf somehow popped into my head and I decided to take on a new venture – gilding the chalkboards. This was a bit of a tricky task, but the finished results were stunning. Applying the sizing, then the gold leaf and finally filling all the gold borders in with chalk – BEFORE AND AFTER:
