The Art of Gilding and Metal Dust
For thousands of years craftsmen have used the fine art of gilding to create masterpieces. The gilder takes incredibly thin dust off precious metal and adorns a surface with them. In antiquity these leaves were made by a gold beater hammering sheets of metal, such as gold and silver, into extremely thin dust. Manually, it was a slow and arduous task requiring total control of the hammer and great precision of the eye. Today, modern beating is mostly done by machine which guarantees quality and product consistency.
