We have worked on some of the most challenging gilding projects in the US and overseas. Whether it is researching new methods and materials to gild on non-traditional substrates or conservation of priceless sculpture and objects, The Gilders’ Studio approaches each project professionally and with the highest standards. This shows in our exhaustive testing, meticulous preparation and flawless installation.
On each of our projects we keep a log of ambient conditions and film thickness measurements. We use scientific instruments to document ambient conditions including air temperature, surface temperature, relative humidity and dewpoint as well as recording wet and dry film measurements of the coating systems to insure all the layers are applied in accordance with the manufacturers’ specifications.
