NYC Gilders - Gold Leaf Installation Estimate

Gilding is a decorative painting technique that is well-known throughout history.  Precious metals such as gold have been used to add a beautiful finish to various surfaces in many NYC historical buildings. Most of us are familiar with silver & gold leaf and know that it can add a lustrous metallic finish wherever it is applied.  There are several methods of gilding, like gold, silver and other metallic paints that are made of real metal particles or powders added to a clear medium.  

The most common is metal leaf gilding. Using thin sheets of metallic leafs that have been made of metals pressed down or hammered to make these extremely thin and light weight metal sheets. The application is a delicate process, that requires a lot of patience, precision & skill. Decorating with gold, silver, copper and other metal leafs is a beautiful way to embellish areas in your home decor, creating depth, texture and a surface that looks rich & classic.
