Gold Leaf Gilding for Works of Art on Canvas, Paper, and Panels...a Study for Fine Artists

IN PERSON Georgian Bay Conservation, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada

This popular one-day Intensive gilding class for Fine Artists returns to Owen Sound at Georgian Bay Art Conservation. Students explore the various methods of working with gold and silver leaf on canvas, paper, and panels for both background and embellishment.

Learn to lay a genuine 23k gold leaf ground for painting as well as brass and silver colored aluminum leaf. Discover the use of MSA Varnish and GAC 200/500 as an isolating coat to protect tarnishable metals while successfully painting over the gilding with acrylic and the possibilities with oil mediums and other options.

Instructor Charles Douglas will patiently take you through the intricacies of working with delicate gold leaf and how to tame it with the proper use of the gilder's tip, pad, and knife. Explore such ancient mordants as gum ammoniac, and glair, and contemporary oil size and acrylic emulsion.

The Gilding For Works Of Art Event is a Live, in-person class. All Levels Welcome, all Materials included (Feel free to bring a work of art though not required).
