This is my first attempt at wood gilding. The process of gilding wood is adhering really thin sheets of gold, silver or copper leaf metal to wood or other materials. It's far thinner than normal aluminum foil and very very brittle. After you put it on the wood you rub it gently with a brush and once it's set you have a metallic finish. I aged it with a secret AtP process and bam you have a wood frame with a metallic finish. They're going to be a bit pricey to make but I think it's well worth it. But then again this whole wood working and finishing thing is expensive in general and luckily it's been starting to pay off.
