    Mark. Why not make a dvd about the gilding and painting techniques. I am really interested, but it is too far from home.

    Dear Marc, I realise this is very late, but are there any more spaces in your gilding and oil painting workshop this Tuesday, as I am very interested? Other than a canvas and paints, is there anything we would need to bring with us? Thanks, Diana.

    Could you send me more information. I’m based in Uvongo on the South Coast
