The last of the Judson's gold. / 8 December 2014

I think I just bought the last 5 boxes of Judsons Gold paint in the whole of Ireland. I have been using Judsons gold since forever as a cheap substitute for gold leaf.

It seems while I was dozing it went  out of production. After much searching online and in art shops I discovered these 5 boxes gathering dust in good old fashioned country hardware store.

The precious: it's little things like this that brighten my day.
