Gilding on Contemporary Bases: TBD


Gilding on Contemporary Bases: TBD


We will use seven different metal leafs on four different acrylic gilding bases. The emphasis will be on ease of use and dependable, spectacular results! You can use this short course as an introduction or “brush up” to previous instruction on gilding. You will have several small (glittering!) finished pieces by the end of this short course. No lettering experience is necessary. Once you experience it I hope you will consider the supply fee a bargain.
