Summary
"This title features glorious effects with gold and silver in over 40 step-by-step ideas and projects. It is a comprehensive practical course on gilding with gold, silver and metals; a contemporary, imaginative approach to an age-old craft. It is clear and authoritative instruction in traditional water and oil gilding techniques, and the use of inexpensive alternatives such as metallic transfer leaf, liquid leaf, powders and pastes. It features: how to gild furniture; make an antique-effect gold urn; produce shimmering frames; and create fabulous decorative items, from flower pots to gilded shells. It features over 40 beautiful easy-to-follow projects, with step-by-step instructions and over 300 photographs. It offers full guidance on all materials, equipment and finishes, with a photograph of every finished piece. Gilding is an ancient and beautiful art dating back thousands of years and used to embellish palaces, cathedrals and stately homes. But gilding is not only appropriate for antiques, and this book explores the numerous contemporary approaches and applications of this dazzling craft. Step-by-step photographs guide the reader through all the basic gilding techniques, with advice on materials, traditional methods and short cuts. There are also clever tips for achieving similar effects through simpler and cost-effective alternatives. The 40 projects create shimmering gilded chairs, tables and frames, frosted glass and tiles, and sparkling decorative treatments for large and small accessories." --Publisher's description
