To emboss gold letters on glass, gild and outline in usual manner. Coat one letter at a time with thick Demar varnish. When letter is coated, dabble the end of a half-inch bristle fitch (that has previously been cut t)ft’) into the varnish. This is called embossing (or stip- pling). When thoroughly dry (say over night) size and gild as in glass gilding. This is used on inside of letters that have previously been outlined in burnished gold, and for backgrounds that have been lettered in any dark color. For embossing backgrounds, letter panel in black or any dark color, and shade with asphal- tum to which has been added a little quick rubbing varnish.
