The art of gilding is of ancient origin. It was lavishly employed in Egypt, Greece and Rome and during the Renaissance.
Gilding (also known as Gold Leaf application or Gold Leafing) is a term that applies not only to the fixing of gold leaf but also to the fixing of all other leaf or powdered metals to embellish and sometimes protect decorative elements of furniture, building interiors and exteriors.
The process involves covering a surface with a thin layer of gold or other metal. It is employed on plaster, marble, wood, metal, ivory, leather, glass, and other surfaces. Gold, or a substitute like silver, bronze, copper or aluminum, may be applied in leaf form (loose or transferred) to a surface treated with oil or water-based size. Moldings, cornices, architraves and skirting boards can be picked up with gold leaf, highlighting its prominent areas. The applied leaf is burnished or left matte.
