Gold leaf and gilding restoration
Leave that tricky gold leaf repair to an expert
Gilding is a decorative technique for applying a very thin coating of gold to solid wooden surfaces. Quite often on mirror and picture frames and certain styles of furniture. Due to the nature of gold leaf it can be quite easily damaged and perishable. Gilding also deteriorates from general cleaning over time.
I have had training and experience in both gilding and gilding repairs, including water and oil gilding. I’m also an experienced carver. If your gilded frame or furniture is damaged, you can count on me to sympathetically conserve and consolidate the remaining gilt, while carefully repairing any damaged or lost gilt work along the way.
