Panel with gesso and bole base watergilded with silver leaf
also available in white gold leaf.

Each panel is hand gilded and therefore unique - images are a guide only as each piece will vary.

Water gilding, which is very different from oil gilding, is centuries old and a very time consuming process • a
gesso and bole base is prepared; there are six to eight layers of gesso, and then three to four layers of bole (which is a mixture of natural earth pigments and gelatin glue applied whilst warm) • each layer of the gesso, and each layer of the bole is finely sanded, and then the last layer of bole is burnished • it is on to this surface that the fragile leaves of gold or silver are laid • once dry the surface can be burnished with an agate stone •
please note that the silver and white gold leaf will tarnish over time as the metal reacts to its environment.More
