In addition, you be introduced to the intriguing world of Granito, the technique of punchwork and incision for decorative embellishment.
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.
Added Series by Popular Demand! This Workshop takes the student on a journey through each step of the ancient traditional water gilding method specifically for panels from the laying and gluing of linen, and preparing and applying gesso and clay bole to laying and burnishing genuine 23k gold leaf and an intriguing introduction to granito, the technique of punchwork and incision for decorative embellishment.
Developed for the Fine Artist as well as the student of Iconography, each lesson addresses a specific step of the process, keeping it challenging while not overwhelming. Students will need a set of gilding tools such as the pad, knife, and tip, various brushes, a book of 23k gold leaf and a raw wood panel to gild. (Assistance in acquiring these is available upon request.)
All classes are Live on Zoom and recorded for viewing by students which remain accessible for six months.
A Materials list will be made available on this website for download soon! Or contact the Instructor Charles Douglas for further info at email@example.com.
