I want to try something different.
I'm going to gild a goldleaf frame on my blog.
Actually it's for a client, but I want to go through the steps,
so you can see a 'Lost Art', it's some cool stuff.
This photo is of some of the stuff I use to gild
I will post every day this week, so you can observe the procedure.
This will be water gilding, a rare and most sought after form
The client will choose from several corner samples, the desired
look of the frame for the art.
I will be useing 22k (karat) Italian gold.
I've been gilding for many years, and have made frames
for Museums, Art Galleries, and High-end art collections.
Rockwell Picasso Motherwell Hans Hoffman Joni Mitchell
to name a few.
Many Russian paintings, some around the world in other museums.
I designed, hand carved and gilded a frame for the original portrait
of Betty Crocker, an art piece in General Mills art collection.
Some of the locals also have my work on there art!
