Gilding with Oil or Acrylic
Students will learn the technique of the application of composition gold leaf to two different surfaces. Various gilding approaches, materials and uses will be discussed. Students will learn the steps of preparing a surface for the application of composition gold leaf using two 9 inch by 12 inch surfaces: 1) stretched canvas and 2) rigid board. The sealed composition gold leaf will then be used as a ground for individual paintings using oils or acrylics as determined by each student’s supply and preference. The focus of this class will be on the gilded surface with the intent to paint on it. The second day will be painting on the surface. Guidance and techniques for painting on the gilded ground will be offered.
