Okay, so let’s have a look at some gilding basics. Just a quick note. The main sections
are found above, and just hover on an area for a sub-menu. These menus contain many different areas that you can learn and explore
from contained within the main topic. If you ever get lost, just click the main 'WATERGILD STUDIOS' title and it'll take you back
to the homepage.
I have created a selection of basic projects for you to try at home within this website,
with photographic step by step tuition to help you along the way. You can use any items that you want to gild from home, the processes
are pretty much the same. However, this is only a basic guide. I am developing the website so that more advanced techniques will
become available over the coming future.
These projects will give you an idea of what gilding is about and allow you to have a
nice gentle introduction. If at any time you get a bit confused, just head back here to the basics section for information on
recipes, tools and how to handle the leaf etc.
If you are new to gilding, I would suggest starting from the first box and working your
way through them to get a reasonable grasp of the processes.
