A 90 Minute Masterclass in 23k Mordant Gilding
Sacred Gilding...Gilding The Buddha…This version of the Sacred Gilding series takes students on a journey to the ancient practice of gold leaf gilding of a Tibetan Buddha.
We begin with the sound of the Tibetan Singing Bowl followed by a brief discussion of the use of gilding in Sacred practice, from Christian Orthodox Iconography to the gilded altars of Hare Krishna with an emphasis on the technical use of the Mordant Gilding method.
This 90 minute Masterclass focuses on three elements:Preparing the Buddha with a Painted undercoat to seal tthe surface and provide a sympatheticc color underneath the Gold Leaf Applying a Water Based Mordant and Gilding in genuine 23k gold leaf Cleaning the gold with clear, pure cold distilled Rosewater
Gilder and Teacher Charles Douglas will guide students in full detail through each step of the Mordant Gilding method as he works on a small Tibetan Buddha, representative of one of the 29 named Buddhas while using the traditional gilder's tools. ~
Simple Cast Buddhas may be found on Amazon which you'll be transforming through the ancient art of gold leaf gilding!
