GILDING

WHY NOT ADD A

TOUCH OF GOLD?

Gold is a magical material that transforms a carving.


If you're commissioning a house sign, a birthday present or having a new mantle piece carved, a touch of gold adds a huge amount of wow factor and quality to a carving. We can guide you in the best way of adding gold to the design, so it stands out and looks good.

There is a huge range of options and types of gold available, from rose gold, yellow gold and different carat golds. Other types of rare metals like platinum, palladium and silver, offer a whole range of surfaces and details.

Restoration and Conservation


Gold has been used as a decorative feature on carvings for thousands of years and we often work on historic objects and houses that have gilded features in need of repair. It is essential in these cases that the correct methods are used to not only consolidate the gold if needed, but also blend in the new gilding with the old.

William Barsley has been trained in gilding, learning the traditional techniques of water gilding, which allows for a high burnish to the gold. He is also familiar with oil gilding and newer techniques and methods.
