As well as gilding on metal, we also carry out the art of laying gold leaf on to prepared wooden surfaces. Both oil and water gilding restoration is carried out in our workshop as well as the consolidation of the gesso layer beneath the gold. Burnishing to accentuate highlights, and toning is carried out to blend the new gold to the existing item so that a perfect match can be achieved.
Any damage to a carved surface can also be carried out using traditional tools and methods. Our craftsmen are able to restore an area where maybe a small amount of damage has occurred or completely re-carve an item due to loss or severe damage.
