Water gilding is the Rolls Royce of the gilding world. It is the pinnacle of this craft and produces the best results with the most longevity.
It has many different stages that must be completed for the final finish, and each stage is a skill and craft in its own right.
This section contains recipes for the different section, a project that demonstrates each of these and finally a photo section that showcases water gilding
in a variety of formats.
It may be easier for you to have understood and practised the oil gilding section before moving on to the water gilding, as the experience will have helped to hone your skills before 'the big one'!
However, don't let me put you off! There is nothing quite as relaxing as water gilding, with each process enabling relaxation, attention to detail
and a great sense of achievement once the project has been completed.
