Picture Frame Gilding Sydney
Looking to add something extra special to a picture or mirror frame?
Then gilding can definitely add a touch of decorative class to whatever you want to showcase. You may also want to update an existing frame or restore an existing gilded frame or mold.
Our artisans have extensive experience with the gilding technique. All our gilded finishes are applied by hand individually right here in our Artarmon premises, so we can ensure quality control and workmanship.
What is Gilding?
Gilding is an age-old technique where a thin layer of gold leaf is applied to an object – in this case, a picture or mirror frame. It was used extensively across the Ancient World by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans as a cost-effective alternative to a solid gold item, which would be too costly or heavy to produce or hang. After application of individual gold leaf sheets – which vary in quality – shellac or sealer is typically applied to ensure the longevity of the gilt.
Among the materials used for gilding the usage of fine gold is well-known. However, nowadays there are many different materials like old imitation, silver, platinum and copper that are much cheaper but still can obtain particular effects. The leaf made of these cost-effective materials is called “commercial leaf” or “imitation”, while the one made of fine 24k gold or white gold is called “pure leaf”.
Feel free to choose the material that suits you best, and our master gilders will provide the best service to strengthen the visual effect and characteristics of it, whether it is furniture, mirrors, design items or picture frames.
