I am familiar with most gilding techniques, although I do not have a classical professional training as a gilder. In conservation and restoration, metalised surfaces are often attached or included in the objects to be restored, so it is advisable to know the structure and problems of the different types of gilding. I’m experienced in leaf gilding (poliment), also oil gilding and lustre techniques.
