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.
This popular one-day Intensive gilding class for Fine Artists returns to New York City at the wonderful Isabel O’Neil Studio this Fall! 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 your choice of oil or acrylic mediums.
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.
Event is a Live, in-person class. All Levels Welcome, all Materials included (Feel free to bring a work of art though not required).
