Traditional Water Gilding
taught by Charles Douglas
at SeppLeaf, NYC
May 2016

Charles Douglas, a traditional gilder, specializes in both custom gilding and restoration of gold leaf gilded frames, furniture, architectural, liturgical and sacred gilding. His focus is contemporary and period-influenced hand finished gilded picture and mirror frames, furniture, and glass gilded mirrors, based on the beautiful gilding art form of verre eglomise. His diverse selection of projects extend from luxury yacht interiors and residences to liturgical gilding and altars.

Charles is a committed teacher of gold leaf gilding. Workshops are held throughout the year for those interested in exploring the mystery and beauty of gold leaf gilding including the ancient method of traditional water gilding.

Whether you're an interior designer, architect, or private party, or someone simply interested in experiencing this ancient craft through one of the gilding classes, I hope you will find Charles Douglas Gilding Studio a helpful resource for all your gilding needs. If you have further questions please feel free to call or email anytime.
