Gilding Academy: the complete guide to create a perfect work of art

In this section Giusto Manetti Battiloro makes available to all the experience gained in over four hundred years of activity and the skills of the best gilders with whom he collaborates. The Accademia della Doratura is a practical guide to the main leaf gilding techniques in precious metal (gold, silver, platinum, palladium) and in imitation metal (imitation gold, aluminum, copper), to the tools necessary for application, to the analysis of materials and surfaces. Thanks to tips, images and videos it is possible to discover the world of gold leaf, its uses in the field of restoration and in those of craftsmanship and design, learn every step of the process and get to know the most ancient techniques and laborious (like gouache gilding) and more modern ones (such as mission gilding and its variations in water, alcohol and paint).

Each phase of the process is described in detail, with a focus dedicated to applications on the most diverse materials such as wood, metal, marble, glass, plastic, leather, paper and cardboard.
