Gilding is the application of gold leaf to a surface and can be applied to any organic material, most commonly wood, plaster, glass (eglomise) and papier mâché. It is often seen on lamp bases, mirrors, frames, sculptures and sign writing.
With over 30 years of experience as a Maestro d’Arte (gilder and restoration expert), Leonard is delighted to offer his expertise and skill to Light Fixation customers. He originally trained in the traditional and authentic Italian way using 15th century Renaissance and Baroque techniques, however he can gild in all the major European disciplines and styles.
At Light Fixation, we restore and repair gilded objects, replicate missing or broken artifacts and undertake new projects.
