Creating the Antique Dutch Black Finish... with Gilded Inner Edge

Online Class Project:

Frame: Each Class Series the Dutch Black Finish class creates a completely Finished frame with a gilded inner edge for a specific piece of art.

Join us as we go through each step of the Antique Dutch Black Finish as inspired by 17thc frames from Holland. Before we're finished we'll mordant gild the frame’s Inner Edge in genuine Gold or White Gold Leaf and tone it for aging. A rare opportunity to learn this beautiful finish for picture frames!

All classes are Live on Zoom and Recorded for viewing. Recordings remain accessible for six months. Question and Answer Periods provided during each session.
