A comprehensive introduction to oil and water-based gilding, the procedures used, and the materials required. Very helpful for beginners, but also excellent for problem-solving by experienced gilders. It covers every aspect of gilding in-depth, with chapters on materials, surface preparation, oil gilding, gesso, water gilding, and special techniques. Effectively illustrated with concise drawings.

This book sets down detailed descriptions and explanations of the traditional oil and water-based gilding methods in a way that another craftsman can follow. Like any skill, gilding requires practice, but if the well-tried methods are followed, and the would-be gilder is prepared to use more gold leaf than the professional, they should be able to produce satisfactory results.
