Gilding is a decorative technique which consists of applying a very thin
layer of gold or other metal leaf to a surface or for those in a hurry, gold wax works a treat!
I thought that because we were starting a new series on designs of a long-lost era – Flemish, Edwardian & Victorian it would be a great time to share how to apply gold wax or leaf to surfaces – namely urns & vases. Gliding can be applied to most surfaces and it's not difficult, just a bit fiddly and time consuming but the end results give any object a lush opulence.
My thoughts are that because it was such a rich opulent time, then the container should reflect this time. Gold leaf or waxes can be found at most good craft stores, or Amazon.
