Gold leaf gilder and restoration artist Ellen Becker brings her years of experience to the table, sharing the long-guarded recipes of this ancient craft along with illustrated, step-by-step instructions for various gold leafing and restoration techniques. This book tells you everything you need to get started and where to find it, it illustrates various techniques for restoring antique frames, and it takes budding craftsmen through a series of projects, starting with simple Dutch metal application through the fine art of water gilding. The artist also shares one of her favorite projects: a gilded box. More than 300 photos provide visual instruction, making this the most comprehensive instructional book for gold leafing on the market to-day.
