Today metals are used in an assortment of uses such as culinary garnishes, furniture, jewelry and fine art. The metal is processed into a tissue-thin leaf which is then applied to a variety of surfaces using a adhesive sizing to hold it in place. The final image produces a lustrous glow. We credit our friend, Dan Burkholder, for sharing his talents and expertise with us in this technique.
In this workshop we will print your files onto a fine art vellum paper, add a layer of metallic leaf in tones of gold, silver or copper and finally apply a layer of varnish to finish the work. These pieces have a unique brilliance and luminosity.
