Glass Gilding...the Elements of Verre Églomisé

1-Day and 2-Day Workshops

Brief but intensive studies in discovering the art of glass gilding, the basis for verre églomisé. Learn to apply genuine 12kt white gold, preparing glass for gilding, and making gelatin size. The 2-Day class also explores creating special effects including candle-smoked glass and gilding acrylic plexiglass.

Workshop includes White Gold shared by the class, glass, materials, and use of all tools.

Class size is limited to 8 students.

Verre Églomisé, the practice of reverse gilding and etched painting on glass incorporating gold and silver leaf, is the foundation for the gilded mirrors offered by Charles Douglas in his Seattle gilding studio.
