French style oil gilding
This amazing ceiling required a form of oil gilding that resembles water gilding. That is, the client wanted super shiney! This particular method of gilding requires the use of loose leaf gold, as it produces a much deeper shine than transfer leaf. We used 12h0ur Le Franc gold size and 23.5 crt gold leaf. After applying the leaf, we skewed off and polished up the gold to an amazing sheen.
