March 22 - we will be enjoying a Gilding workshop with DAN MOONEY!

We will use Instacoll and Miniatum ink for raised gilding and Tressor size for flat gilding. We will also learn to “tool” patterns and designs onto the gold leaf. Simple watercolor techniques will be shown, that will make your work really POP! Dan will demonstrate techniques of using home-made gesso as a base for raised gilding, polishing the gesso and then polishing the gold, once it is applied to achieve a mirror finish! Dan has about 40 years of experience with color and gold. He has had one man shows, published work in periodicals and books. Dan was also commissioned by the New Boston Tea Party Museum to create a custom designed 1773 map loaded with gold. He is also the lettering artist for Gilded Age Greetings with Rosemary Buczek.
