Gilders create patinas for several reasons, to give the appearance of age, or to harmonize a frame with a work of art, or simply to get the look that you want in your gilded works of art. Many different toning techniques will be taught, for instance a chemical patina to silver leaf with a vermeil finish, a French rub etc. This class will give you the knowledge and skills to create almost any finish. You will complete up to 9 corners in class. All materials are included in the tuition.
