Expert Gold Leaf Gilding

"Nothing compares to the visual impact of 'Gold Leaf Gilded Lettering on Glass'"

The mirror-like image gold leaf lettering & scrolling achieves is the choice of the finest restaurants, offices, shops, collectors & establishments that demand a classy, highly visible approach to their connection with the public.

History has revealed the Egyptians & other cultures mastered the art of gold gilding including the masterpiece of Soloman's Temple.

My original apprenticeship was sign writing during which time I have worked with artisans such as Frank Kingman a master sign writer & pictorial artist, Ray Beckley & Bob Garlepp who are individuals in their approach to hand lettering, dagger line & scrolling, and gold leaf gilded effects that few have been able emulate.

I have endeavored to master many of the original hand brush skills including verre églomisé techniques to achieve individual gilded backgrounds, reverse gold leaf gilded lettering plus distressed glass mirror effects.  

I always enjoy working with my clients, from the initial meeting then discussing and accumulating their designs & thoughts, resulting in a beautifully gilded image and a satisfied customer.

Interview of Ray Pedersen by Mr Blanc (Cory White). Images Copyright (C) 2011 Cory White.

...Unlike a lot of other artists, Ray [Pedersen] doesn’t believe he does anything out of the ordinary. In his words there is “no mystery” to what he does. I am sure he understands the artisan nature of what he does, but he refuses to embellish or glamorise his skills, which is an endearing sentiment. For a person like me who cant even sketch a human, its impressive to watch his precision. A gentle mix of technique and innate skill.

Basically he gets on with making stunning hand made signage and his gold leaf work is sought after by all and sundry. It really is a pleasure to watch. Especially the bit where he rubs his brush on his head creating static charge to attract the gold leaf to his German brushes. Odd, but it’s part of the art he reckons.
