City: Brooklyn, NY
In June, 1989, I was again accepted for a temporary construction assignment at Brooklyn Bethel. One of the projects I worked on was applying Angel Gild 22K Gold leaf to this sign. The design and sandblasting had already been done by the art staff at Bethel.
I flew up to New York in my small airplane. On the way, the pressure difference caused all my Angel Gild chemicals to leak out of their containers. I had empty bottles and a saturated box when I got there. Anyone need a wet hunk of cardboard with $140.00 worth of Gold soaked in? We made a quick trip to Art Essentials in Manhattan to restock the chemicals and were thus able to get this job done.
While I was up there, the Tianamen Square Massacre occurred in China, a real perspective adjuster. Compared to what people were enduring over there, my losing $140.00 worth of Gold was nothing.
I will include here a link to two fine Gold leaf and Angel Gild suppliers.
