The art of gilding has existed for centuries. We offer a full range of gold leaf restoration services including application to decorative paint, stencils, wood and plaster moldings, weathervanes, tower clocks and historic cupolas. We can perform gold leaf conservation, restoration and new applications on wood, metal and painted surfaces. Gold leaf is an extremely durable exterior finish when properly applied as it does not oxidize or otherwise tarnish. The leaf is pounded out of nearly pure gold, alloyed with other metals for color, malleability, or other properties.
