The leaves of my rubber plant curling and turning brown.?

I just got this plant (which was sent to a funeral) and do we know very little. Please I need help. I do not want to die.

I bought one this summer and remains head of the court. It was a rainy summer and the plant thrived. purchase, and he began to lose leaves. By trial and error, I discovered that he likes lots of water (well water at least once a week and buy a column of water plants to test the wetness of water on the ground) and mist leaves at least every two weeks. Once u do this, begin to sprout new leaves and grow well actully to test u sure once with water column numbers to be between 3 and 4. Accordingly, the leaves begin to fall. Its such a beautiful plant

The Gilder, his workshop and tools

Dorado, just a job, is an art, and as such the gilder Must Have an artistic taste, not only but you must have learned the elements of design and be educated to the nature and characteristics of the decorative styles of different ages.

To cultivate his artistic taste, the gilder must read books and visit museums and exhibitions of art and must also be updated on latest hardware and equipment.

The art of gilding is not limited to the application of gold leaf, but it must include knowledge and application of the coating, because most of the time gold is on a basis of plaster.

The gilder must also be a designer expert, because they often make great party decor more golden, and sometimes perhaps to all the decorations of gold and lacquer.

The gilder uses two methods of metallization, which will take the name of gold, as relates to applications of gold leaf, but the name is also used to implement foil. As already said, there are two types of bonding: one is the application of the sheet, while the other is dragging. In the first case, the thin metal sheet is placed on a prepaid card, while in the second metal powder case is used.

The workshop, where these activities take place, is much more important and determines the success of the final work. Study the gilder must be broad, dry, well ventilated and well lit. There should be divided into two parts: one is where preparations place, and the other is where the real gold. This division is necessary to prevent the movement of air that can disturb the gold and to prevent dust. The store of gold must be scrupulously cleaned to avoid dust on the surface and ruin the work.

Parts to be dried are hung with hooks for lifting the ground.

A heating system or even an electric heater is also necessary, especially in the winter to keep the plaster, stucco and sprays hot.

Here are some suggestions and comments part of a gilder who has 30 years experience in this field:

Before starting any work is important to know exactly what to do, what is the best way is to realize where to start, what problems can occur, and how to solve them, and finally how the final piece must leave. Do not start a new operation, or part thereof, without completing the previous one. When you use a new material or technique is always better test first on a small piece of First Instance. If you must perform several pieces of the same quality, is more convenient to "produce mass "which means that you have at the end of the first operation in all parts first, then proceed to the second phase and on. Another important point is to have all the tools and materials needed to perform the work.

We will examine more closely materials used by the gilder, cleaning and preserving them, which are essential elements of the work itself to achieve a good result.

The Spatula: Used to prepare a smooth surface of cast objects to eliminate roughness, to seal holes and punctures. Some are made of wood, but in general have a hardened steel blade into a hardwood handle, round or oval. The blade is flexible and can be of different shapes and sizes.

The Abbiette: There are two main types of this corner: one is for the sandpaper and cloth, the other is for abrasive. Both are made of hardwood and are relatively low. The first has a single 1 cm cork, affixed to one side during the Biette, you put on paper glass. When the special pieces that work, the cap is not replaced by a layer of foam. For the angles and edges are very irregular use a single layer of felt used, which is soaked in water or oil, so it can absorb much abrasive as possible. For some work is preferable to use a wood Biette becomes more flexible by reducing some deep cuts and using a rubber outsole. In other cases, particularly for molding, a wood Biette of different sizes are used, with a slit on one side to establish the role sand, while the other is.

Sweden: it is the skin of a deer, roe deer, chamois, some skins, tanned with oil and used to thoroughly clean all surfaces and fingerprints fat. When they are dirty, they should be washed with soap and 1% sodium carbonate and rinse with warm water.

Sponge: there are different types: natural, vegetables, rubber and plastics. In general, only the first is used, with plush towels size proportional to the work. In addition to its usual target for cleaning surfaces, which are also used for loads of wood in place. Must be washed in the same manner described above for the suede.
modeling tools: They are made of steel Tempered, double blade ways from edge to edge. They are used for stucco, correction and modeling. They must be polite and clean, especially labor.

The Raschietto: used for scraping and touching the plastered surfaces. They are available in different forms as moldings and decorations to be retouched. They are made of steel and must always be strong to give a perfect finish.

The streets of gold is a small plate (25x12 cm) with a layer of cotton covered by calf to be sufficiently smooth. Leather, where games gold leaf must be thoroughly clean and free of oil. It is good from time to time to give a chalk dust to remove all traces of oil. Preferably, the buffer is equipped with parchment paper to protect the metal layers.

The section Brown (spatula) is a fan of Shap fine hairs of the tail of the Siberian squirrel which is fixed between two pieces of cardboard. It is used to make bread paved with gold and placed it on the table surface. To be able to keep the sheet is usually oiled by rubbing on a cushion of fat sheep kept at a temperature of 37 degrees, or simply which makes static contact with the skin.

brown knife: used to collect and remove the plate. The blade is about 180-200mm long and 25 to 30 mm wide and sharp to cut the gold without damaging the leather upholstery. You can be single or double blade.

The polishing tools: These tools form different noise and cleaning of hard stone used to polish the gold leaf on the frame without polishing. For gold, stone cutting, shaping, ground and polished agate used. The stones are attached to a long handle forest ending with a metal ring. They have very different ways depending on the elements polishing, it is necessary to have a great choice. To keep clean, which sometimes rubbing on a cushion of soft leather.

Brushes: There are several types of brushes for gold and may vary from work to work. So do not vary in quality, as in the shape and size. Usually consist Beef, pork, badgers, wild boar, bear, squirrel, Siberian squirrel and sows. To glue the leaf to the surface below, very soft brushes are generally used long-haired squirrel. Sable brushes are better for the so-called "gouache" gold, to dampen and compact the road to better resist water, and they remain soft and flexible. round brushes well and refined from shaggy sweet marten are used for the repair. Brushes described above must be careful with the care and gilder must make sure not to change its shape.

For the glaze, soft shapes and sizes in flat brushes sable and squirrel in Siberia is generally preferred, must be well refined, round and soft edges. Whereas the round brushes in the form of long-haired ox and the pig are used for plastering.

brushes Dirty washed with hot water, turpentine is used when they become very dry and hot.

In addition, articles and hands may contain traces of gold wash in a bathtub full of soapy water. The gold goes to the heart of Cuba. Surface water is filtered and water soap news is replaced by the top, after several months of containing less precious metal is removed, dried and then the waste is collected in an appropriate location and burned, leaving the ash to be sold to a dealer of precious metals.
