Glass Gilding — Edinburgh & Lothians

Gold leaf glass gilding would have, at one point in history, been considered the pinnacle of the traditional sign writers work. The finished product is a result of a difficult & delicate process that hinges on an incredibly fragile and expensive material, 24 carat gold leaf. Breathe on it just a little too hard and there is every chance you will ruin a leaf.

Despite the material’s temperamental nature, gold leaf gives the most incredible and luxurious finish to a sign.

Thomas has been honing his glass gilding skills for a number of years now and has executed gilded signs for framing, alongside many door numbers and house names.
