Dan Mooney - Playing with Gold!

Supply List

This class will familiarize participants and build their confidence with the beautiful art of gilding. Understanding the simplicity of gilding makes it easier to integrate gold into any piece you may want to create. In this fun class, you will learn simple flat and raised gilding techniques on a finished piece. After the gold is laid, you will use various tools to “tool” the gold with patterns and enhance edges to make the gold more reflective. Ormoline gilding medium will be used for flat gilding, and Instacoll will be used for raised gilding. After the gilding is complete, basic watercolor tips and techniques will be used for an oval acanthus border.
