Going for gold – gilding and verre eglomise

In Saturday’s workshop,  Club Members tried their hands at gilding, with Tutor Sarah Davis.

They started by embellishing their personal objects with 23ct. gold leaf. Next was the ancient art of Verre Eglomise, which is the technique of applying gold leaf to glass. Once the gold is dry any design, colour or texture can be added to make the surface even more appealing.

Members left the workshop with some impressive bling!
