When gold leaf or silver leaf is applied to either Lettering, Logos, Artwork on any glass surface (eg. windows, splashbacks, glass ballustrades) the effect can instill in the observers longevity, establishment and stability. As you can see from our projects, the result is stunning and classic.
Interested in more examples of Gold Leaf Signwriting (eg. on Shop-front windows)?
Reverse Gilding / Verre Églomisé
The Gold or Silver leaf is applied with a water size using a Squirrel hair "Tip" to lift the leaf. Once the size has dryed the metal surface can be 'Burnished' to a brilliant mirror effect.
Reverse water gilding on glass surfaces such as:
- Kitchen Splash backs, &
- Table Tops
... is the choice of clients requiring either a brilliant mirror effect or a distressed & aged appearance. After a final varnish is applied the reverse gilded surface can be cleaned gently with warm soapy water and if maintained correctly should last 40 years or more. Glass splash backs can be gilded in a variety of metals with effects including sand blasted lettering, patina effects, distressed mirror effects, murals etc.
