Stained Glass Art Angel of Peace ,Original, Framed "Isabella", with 23-K Gold-Leaf Wings

Wooden frame with gold-tone detail, iridescent purple/blue stained
glass, wooden panel, acrylic paint and 23-K Gold Leaf wings.
7" x 9"

This work began with a rubber stamp and the credit is Rubber
Stampede, "Glorious Angel."

I applied several layers of acrylic paint before stamping to give the look of age to the piece.
I painted the image and background with acrylic paints and applied the 23-K Gold
Leaf to the wings.
I added an iridescent piece of purple/blue stained glass to the frame and applied the wooden plaque on top of the glass to achieve an unusual framing technique.
I love to apply the Gold Leaf to the angel's wings.

For anyone who is not familiar with genuine gold leaf, here is a little info:
In addition to being expensive (I had to eat beans & rice for weeks in order to afford it), genuine Gold Leaf is difficult to handle. It comes in a three inch square booklet and it's sandwiched between tissue paper.
It's hammered so thin that I wonder how it's manufactured. You cannot pick it up with your fingers because it will turn to powder (think butterfly wings).
The Gold Leaf is picked up with a special brush and the use of static electricity. At that point, I try not to breathe on it as it'll fly away and one good sneeze will cost about $5.
I use a special adhesive for Gold Leaf and once it's in place, I burnish it.

I try to create my Angels of Peace as beautifully as possible in order to capture the viewer's attention long enough to deliver my message of peace. Whenever you see a Huddle Angel, I hope it prompts you to say a prayer for peace.

Peace Out,

Kathleen
