Oil Gilding…and other Mordants

Workshop Fee: $150.00 (includes materials and use of all gilding tools)

Mordant gilding, the application of any of a variety of binders onto a prepared ground to adhere gold leaf, is a centuries old gilding technique. Many examples can be found in Cennini’s 15th c treatise “Il Libro dell’ Arte”, including the preparation of oil size.

 

Students are guided through the oil gilding process as used for applying gold, silver, and other metal leaves to frames, furniture, and decorative objects. Other suitable materials for oil gilding include glass and stone.

 

Each student is provided an unfinished picture frame to gild and take home, using an acrylic emulsion mordant and brass leaf. Students also participate in a hands-on oil gilded class project using genuine 23k gold leaf.
