The GildedPlanet.com is excited to partner with Charles Douglas from The Gilding Studio to provide you with the highest quality, hands on training for the gilding arts.
Oil Gilding, also known as a form of Mordant Gilding, is the application of a specially formulated oil-based varnish to a non-porous surface as an adhesive for gilding. This varnish which comes in both Quick Size and Slow Size versions can be used with any precious and non-precious metal leaf including gold leaf, silver leaf, brass, aluminum, palladium, and platinum leaf.
Suitable for both Interior and Exterior applications, Oil Gilding has an extraordinarily wide range of applications, from frames, furniture, and architectural detail to any object made of wood, metal, or stone.
This 3-Part Online Gilding Class teaches the student the fundamentals of Oil Gilding: - How To Properly Seal and Paint an Undercoat for objects made of wood, metal, or stone, each demonstrated in class - How To Apply the Oil Size and when to choose Quick or Slow Size - How to Gild using imitation gold and silver (Brass and Aluminum Leaf) - How to gild using genuine 23k Gold Leaf using the gilder’s tools: the Pad, Knife, and Tip - How to clean the gilded gold leaf with cold water, apply shellac as a final Sealer, and applying basic Toning materials for Antiqued effects.
