Gold Leafing / Gold Gilding
Gold Leafing is one of the most prominent ancient art. Indeed this decorative art was discovered when a tiny piece of Gold was beaten down into a delicately fine sheet of gold. These fine sheets of gold were then overlaid onto an object, an art which is now known as Gold-Leafing or Gold Gilding. Gold-Leafing covers and decorates the surface of the objects with a thin layer of gold. It adds shimmer and grace to the applied object. In short, any clean surface is eligible for Gold Gilding. For example, Walls, Ceilings, POP, Wood, Stone, Leather, Metal, Plastic, and Glass looks great with Leafing. It adds an elegant and decorative touch to surfaces. It is also beneficial in enhancing the beauty of antiques. Gold Leaves is available in mostly two types.
