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.
New Fall Class! This 3 day class is designed for Fine artists in Egg Tempera, Oils, and Acrylics and takes the student on a journey through each step of the ancient traditional water gilding method. Students learn the laying and gluing of linen, preparing and applying gesso and clay bole, gilding and burnishing genuine 24k gold leaf with 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 and framing, this unique class addresses each specific step of the process. Materials are included and students may use the studio gilding tools during class (optional gilding kits are available through gildedplanet upon request).
A Materials list will be available soon on this website for download under the Materials tab.
Class Size is Limited to 9 so early registration is encouraged.
