Gilding Process


Laying the gold over the bole and size-prepared cross motif.




After rubbing, the back paper is removed.


The adhered gold is then gently brushed of excess.

The gilded cross is later detailed with background color to neaten the edges.

Then on to the next gilded banding.

It's a time-consuming and meticulous process, but well-worth the end result.
