This book is an authentic Metal Leafing step-by step guidebook that introduces the products you need and demonstrates the techniques (including tips and tricks) used for metal leafing that have been passed down throughout the history of metal leafing. Leafing allows the artist to create an object that has the appearance of solid metal, without going to the expense of casting a solid object out of metal. It is often seen in embelled calligraphy works and it's also great for covering any home decor objcts, picture frames, or incorpirating into paintings and cards. You'll find written and visual instructions on the techniques used to achieve that glorious end look.
Contains colorful images of gilding procedures and finished work
