Gold Leaf Gilding on Terracotta Pot Beginners workshop in Bangalore
About Gold Leaf Gilding
Gilding is a decorative technique for applying a very thin coating of gold to solid surfaces such as metal (most common), wood, porcelain, or stone. Gold leaf is gold that has been hammered into thin sheets by goldbeating and is often used for gilding. Layering gold leaf over a surface is called gold leafing or gilding. And it gives an object a gold appearance at a fraction of the cost of creating a solid gold object.
