About Gold Leaf Gilding

Nothing is as good as gold. Used throughout history the technique of beating solid gold into fine leaf and adhering to a “sized” surface is still very much in demand. For Honours Boards, Shop Fascia Signs and Decorative Work nothing beats the lustre of genuine gold leaf glinting in the sunshine.

Traditionally gilding lettering enables us to continue adding to rolls of names exactly as our Victorian forebears would have done. Painting the gold size as an adhesive and transferring the gold onto the surface at the correct time of tackiness. Honours of Rank, Heads of Establishment, Past Masters and Memorials are often lettered in this manner.
