Also undertaken is the gilding of furniture, picture frames, doors, architraves, cornices, and just about anything else. The use of gold leaf can be traced back to the ancients and its continual popularity is testament to its unrivalled quality. This type of work can be seen all over Brighton & Sussex.
Goldleaf on any object adds an air of grandeur and elegance that no other material can.
Gold leaf can breath new life into an otherwise ordinary object adding light, mystery & magic. Distressed looks can be achieved on picture frames or other objects by painting any colour onto the frame & then gilding over the top of this. Then with some fine sandpaper rub away some areas of gold leaf to reveal the colour underneath, creating a very stylish looking picture frame.
