Elements from today's water gilding class...creation of a frame sample of gilded Caplain leaf, recipes on gesso, bole, rabbit skin glue binder, freehand gilded pastiglia, sharing of a new and exciting book: Gilding at Versailles by Daniel Sievert and Laurent Hissier including principles of traditional water gilding and restoration. Tomorrow we end on burnishing 23kt gold leaf, rubbing the leaf, shellac as a clear coat, and an introduction to toning! ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #artworkshops  #gustavklimt #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld  #coursehorse #visualmerchandising #watergilding

Day 2 of the Traditional Water Gilding class in Seattle. Today we applied pigment to gesso to aid in sanding and discussed which grade of sandpapers to use and why, made and prepared clay bole with a 10% gelatin solution, gilded in 23kt gold leaf and pre-burnished to secure overlaps and gentle wrinkles which relates to the vision of a gilded rub planned for day 3. :) ~ #seppleafproducts #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gildedplanet #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts #pictureframing #pictureframe  #custompictureframing #nycgildingclasses #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter #museumframing #fineartframing #gold #gildedframe #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #asid #temperapainting #oilpainting #acrylicpaintingartist #acrylicpainting #artworkshops

A successful gesso day for day 1 of the traditional water gilding class in Seattle. We made and applied 14 coats of 10% rsg, hard gesso, soft gesso, and interlaggio along the frame mitres to inhibit cracking of the gesso at the mitred corners. Tomorrow we prepare the clay bole 👍:) ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gildedplanet #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts #pictureframing #pictureframe  #custompictureframing #nycgildingclasses #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter #museumframing #fineartframing #gold #gildedframe #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #asid #temperapainting #oilpainting #acrylicpaintingartist #acrylicpainting #artworkshops #bostonartists

Watergilding a new flat, contemporary frame profile sample in Caplain leaf, a beautiful leaf that I find most closely resembles polished nickel when burnished. Hand-applied gesso, pinhole-free. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #artworkshops #watergilding #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld  #coursehorse #custompictureframing

Water gilded Moon Gold over black bole with a medium ‘rub’ to reveal the bole. I use a paste of alcohol and calcium carbonate for the rub (the powder or ‘chalk’ used to make gesso) and not steel wool. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #artworkshops #oilgilding #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld  #coursehorse

Wetting the long perimeter beading of this watergilded 12k white gold frame. The water seeps in quickly at first along the bole and underlying gesso. A few passes allows the water to lay a little longer on the surface. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #artworkshops #oilgilding #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld  #coursehorse

A nice red bole laid, now ready for all that white gold ;). I use a ratio of 1 part 10% rabbit skin glue (or gelatin) : 1/2 part water : 1.67 parts well-hydrated bole which rolls like heavy cream.

Applying red clay bole for watergilding in 12k white gold leaf on this custom carved frame. Making sure the bole covers each bead equally around the surfaces. Who knows what music is in the background? One of my favorite arias. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #gildedplanet #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #acrylicpaintingartist #acrylicpainting #artworkshops  #oilpaintingoncanvas #oilpaintingartist #gustavklimt #oilgilding #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld #verreeglomise #antiques #restoration #coursehorse

Applying the first coat of hard gesso to a flat, contemporary walnut frame. The top will be watergilded in moon gold, the sides taped-off to allow for clean oiling when the gilding is done. The first few coats of gesso are smoothed over by hand to eliminate the presence of pinholes which begin in the first coat and will carry-through if not controlled. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio # #seattleartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #acrylicpaintingartist #acrylicpainting #artworkshops  #oilpaintingoncanvas #oilpaintingartist #klimt #oilgilding #gilder #national_arts #kentuckyarts #kentuckyartist #coursehorse #gilding_in_kentucky #canvas #canvaspainting #torontoartist

Last stroke of gesso for the night...an intriguing curve to this frame design. Numerous strips of Sekishu Japanese paper were applied under the gesso along the joinery to help prevent or minimize any cracking in the gesso along these lines where wood meets wood.

23kt gold leaf, water gilded during class, demonstrating that sweet spot when I like to burnish, when there is still a bit of moisture in the system, when the burnish is soft and bright. About two hours after gilding, depending on the weather and environment and amount of hydration during gilding. But be mindful not to break through the surface and when in doubt, leave it till the next day. ~ #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #charlesdouglasgildingstudio #seattleartist #nyartist #gilding #goldleaf #gildingclasses #seppleafproducts  #interiordesign #artclasses #gildingartsnewsletter  #fineartframing #gold  #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #acrylicpaintingartist #acrylicpainting #artworkshops  #oilpaintingoncanvas #oilpaintingartist #gustavklimt #oilgilding #gildersearch #gilder  #decorativefinishes #artworld #verreeglomise #antiques #restoration #coursehorse #visualmerchandising
