Nearly there... going to knock back the reclining buddha with red, hopefully today. Family all out playing, mostly.
The gold leaf on which the figure reclines is in fact gold leaf,which suits my purposes perfectly. I was trying the show the solid gold-ness of the statue - and indeed that it was a statue - this is a short-hand solution. Also the gold leaf was a present from my papa who didn't use it in his work. He bought it as a response to the gold leaf I used years ago given to me by an artist friend who entered Berlin after the war and, er, found it. I'd used all that up (fantastic quality) and so Stafford gave me his which though a Good Thing is a shadow of the war booty.
