Students will learn techniques for the application of composition gold leaf on three different substrates. Various gilding approaches, materials, and uses will be discussed. Students will learn the steps of preparing and manipulating a surface for the application of composition gold leaf, using three 9-by-12-inch substrates. The sealed composition gold leaf will then be used as a surface for painting, using oils or acrylics as determined by each student’s supply and preference. Each person will complete the class with three gilded surfaces and begin to develop them into creative works of art. All skill levels are welcome. Note: Gilding supplies provided.
