The GildedPlanet.com is excited to partner with the Charles Douglas Gilding Studio to provide you with the highest quality, hands on training for the gilding arts.
Designed for the Custom Picture Framer, this class takes the student through each step of the beautiful ancient method of traditional water gilding. This particular method of gilding brings an enhanced elegance to the beveled edge of frame mats often used for photographs and works of art on paper.
Students will learn to make and apply rabbit skin glue and gesso while gilding two class projects in 23kt gold leaf and 12kt white gold leaf over a choice of red, black, or blue clay boles. Gilding will be burnished bright and rubbed to reveal the underlying clay color.
Join us for this exciting and rare opportunity to learn this method of gilding as applied to the beveled edges of Frame Matting!
