GILDING WITH GOLD LEAF
When you think of gilding with gold leaf you may immediately think of weather vanes and decorative fences. These are indeed often coated with gold leaf. But there are many more objects that you can have carefully gilded by us.
Think of clocks, works of art and for example the legs of an antique bath. Loonen Vergulders gild almost everything.
But what exactly is gold leaf gilding? Gilding is the application of a wafer-thin layer of gold leaf to decorate or protect an object.
This technique has been used for centuries on e.g. weather vanes on top of churches, church organs, dials, coats of arms, fences and facing stones.
But also gilding of objects is very popular. The application of a layer of gold leaf serves not only as decoration but also as protection and immortalisation of an object.
The unique look and feel of gold leaf cannot be matched by gold paint or other decoration techniques.
