Known affectionately by friends and rather humorously I might add as ‘The Queen Of Gold Leaf’ gilding in its many forms is one of my absolute passions. I have been gilding now for well over 30 years and am completely self taught. It all started with a mirror. Which actually looked in the end as though a blind man had been given free rein in sweet wrapper factory. But hey ho, we learn from our mistakes. But from that moment on I was hooked. So in this section of my blog you will find all my gilding projects.
From how to apply loose or transfer leaf to walls. ceiling or even a staircase I have it all. From small projects to large. And don’t worry, I won’t inflict my love of gold on you. You are of course free to use silver, copper or any other colour leaf for that matter. From beginners to the more experienced I hope you will find something to inspire you.
