Gold Gilding

“Gold leaf, which is created by hammering gold into very thin sheets, is used to gild paintings, sculptures, and architectural details. In art, the use of gold leaf is perhaps most closely associated with the technique of “gold ground,” a process that involves applying gold leaf to a wooden panel and using a burnisher to create a resplendent shine.

Applying gold leaf requires expertise as well as an artist’s eye. It is a fragile, expensive and brital material to work with.
When applied with proper precision, the results can create a surface coating unmatched in its perfection. In its most basic definition, gilding can be described as the covering of a base or common material with a layer of gold.”
