Publisher Comments:

Turn ordinary objects into golden treasures. Full-color photos of gallery pieces from professional designers will inspire you. ..".Transform any conceivable object into one of refined beauty, style, and elegance....All you need is a bit of patience, the right materials, a few easy-to-use tools, and the inspiration of Jane LaFerla's Gilding....Gilding will show you, step-by-step, how to surround your photographs with a small oval frame that's every bit as beautiful as the picture inside it, turn a flea-market lamp with mounted gold leafs on both base and shades thus transforming it into the focal point of a room; use silver or copper to transform an ordinary footstool into a family heirloom; astonish dinner guests with plates accented in gold, copper, or silver...is a unique crafts home reference book that will open a whole new area of 'do-it-yourself' creativity and artistry."--The Midwest Book Review. 112 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.

Synopsis:

Gilding gives everyone the Midas touch. You'll be surprised at how simple and inexpensive the technique is — basically a sophisticated cousin to cutting and pasting, using an adhesive known as size and a "skin" of thinly beaten metal. Instructions are peppered with stunning full-color photos of gallery pieces from professional designers to inspire you through each simple step. An inexpensive oval frame will stop admirers in their tracks when treated with gold leaf. Make an impression with relief cartouche greeting cards in gold, silver, or copper, and turn old boxes, frames, candlesticks — just about anything from flea markets or garage sales — into works of art. To truly amaze guests, add a golden shimmer to plates, baskets, chocolate — even roast chicken! This dazzling guide will help you brighten the world around you.
