The catalogue dedicated to wood gilding offers a range of products to embellish surfaces with different techniques and materials for gilding.
Over the centuries, gilding has evolved, starting from the artisan application of refined gold leaves up to the present day, in which it is possible to choose whether to apply an original leaf or whether to obtain always precious results with perfect imitations, also ranging from the silver leaf and copper leaf.
The techniques for gilding wood are different, and for this reason the catalogue also contains the accessories dedicated to the various processes: leaf, powder or purpura, with patina or retouching.
In addition to the materials for the gilding phase, the catalogue also presents the accessory materials for the background, the finishing and the protection of the gilded surfaces, as well as finishes for the chrome plating and metallic paint in different colors.
Do you want to make your wooden artifact precious? Also tap into our wood gilding tutorials, made by seasoned professionals. With the 360° solutions from Borma Wachs you can achieve an impeccable result!
