Sacred Gilding...Gilding a Stone Buddha in 23kt Gold Leaf, Toned in Raw Umber (May 19 - June 2, 2021)

With 23kt Gold Leaf!

Designed to introduce students to the special beauty of 23kt gold leaf. We begin with 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 Oil Gilding method.

Gilder Charles Douglas will demonstrate applying a thin coating of oil size to a small replica of one of the 29 named Buddhas while using traditional gilder's tools in gilding with genuine loose 23k gold leaf. (Note: Gilding kits available for purchase below include 23k; 12k is available separately).

Students may use their own tools, gold, and materials to follow along during this very special Masterclass Tutorial or simply sit back, watch and enjoy! All Zoom Online classes are Live Sessions and are also recorded and available for viewing by students until the end of the Quarter. Students may register for the class and simply watch the recorded version as an option (links to the Live class and the recording are sent to registered students automatically; recordings are usually available within 48 hours of the Live class).

Simple Cast Buddhas may be found on Amazon which you'll be transforming through the ancient art of gold leaf gilding!
