Carved Empire dresser

Working on an Empire dresser that is missing one of the carvings.

Work notes:

  • Cut a piece of wood with the appropiate measurements and mark the original carving.
  • Trim the wood
  • Turn it (so we get the opposite side) and carve it
  • Sand the surface properly
  • Apply Gilder’s clay bowl
  • Gild and polychrome
