Gold Leaf Gilding

Gold Leaf Gilding

Gold leaf gilding has been used for thousands of years in decorative arts. It is found in woodworking, painting, interior design, bookbinding, and in the decoration of pottery. Gold is used for “its inherent everlasting beauty and reflective qualities,” said professional painter, Adan Contreras.

Working with fine “thin as a feather” 23-karat gold patent leaf, Adan and the team from MB Jessee Painters restored the spindles on the front porch of a beautiful Victorian home in Alameda. Once sanded and primed, Adan used the oil gilding technique to prime the spindle balls and then apply the gold leaf.

Working in the San Francisco bay area since 1995, Adan is one of the decorative finishing experts working on MB Jessee fine home and commercial projects.

“Gold does not oxidize, so it will last for years and years,” added Adan, “and it makes ornate details on buildings really stand out.”
