Gold Leaf Gilding for Works of Art on Canvas, Paper, and Panels...a Study for Fine Artists

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. 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. Determine the use of Protective Varnishes and clearcoats such as MSA and GAC 200/500 for incorporating various leafs into your paintings.
