  1. Would it be safe to have a lit candle in there? (I'm doing this without the gold leafing part)

  2. Gorgeous work!  Very inspiring.  Not for the faint of heart… it takes technique, much patience and a total commitment.  Amateurs like me need to do a few easy projects and 'mess up' a little before we can attempt a project like this.  :o)  Thanks for this great tutorial.

  3. guau te superas con cada trabajo, es precioso y super complicado cada cosa que haces me gusta mas que la anterior felicidades tienes unas manos maravillosas.
