This popular 3-Day intensive workshop introduces the student to the traditional method of water gilding. Students are guided through each of the steps including preparation of gesso and clay bole grounds, laying of genuine 23k gold leaf, burnishing, and toning. The oil gilding method will also be discussed as well as an overview of patination principles.|
Handouts, including recipes, a bibliography of educational materials, and a supplier list will be provided. An emphasis is placed upon learning rather than the necessary completion of a major project; however, students will have the opportunity to gild an object in genuine gold leaf to take home.
Traditional water gilding is designed for use on wood and may be used for such objects as frames, furniture, and architectural elements.
Workshop includes 23k gold leaf for the class to share, materials, use of all gilding tools, and objects to gild for learning the basics of this beautiful craft..
