Did you know that gold leaf comes in a range of golds from a pale, almost silver to a deep yellow gold?

Our in-house gilder has been with us for 25 years and has a wealth of expertise in laying the leaf.

The process is long and a real craft as it only begins after the frame has been made. Then there are a series of preparation of layering the base with Bol and then sanding back to create a perfectly smooth surface. Then the frame is ready for the gold leaf to be laid which is a whole process in itself. It can also be aged and distressed to give more character.

So a gilded frame is a very special thing and perfect for very special artwork.
