GILDING AND SHABIN

Gilding

The application of thin sheets of metal over an adhesive that has been applied to the subject material such as wood or plaster. We apply a polished plaster before the gilding process to ensure a smooth surface free of unwanted textures. Gilding can be done in a variety of metals like gold leaf, silver leaf, and palladium or aluminum leafing, among others. 

Shabin

A broken leaf finish applied with various amounts of spacing over colored plaster.
