Gilding & Patination with Scott Grove June 11 - 12, 2022

about this workshop

Metal gilding has been used to accent objects since the beginning of time and adding colorful patinas to the metal leaf can create an entirely new level of aesthetic enhancement to your work. In this class students learn conventional and unconventional oil-size metal gilding methods. A variety of chemical formulations will be introduced with a wider variety of application techniques using resists, stencils, and applicator screens that will yield beautiful patina compositions on a variety of copper, brass, and silver leaf. Real 24k gold will be used too as an accent, because gold does not accept a patina. Experimentation is encouraged and students will leave with a variety of sample boards and documented formulations.
