Gilding

 

Cliveden Conservation prides itself in retaining specialist skills for the more traditional of crafts. Our conservators can restore missing elements of decoration as well as carry out a major reinstatement of decorative schemes with the application of new gilding and traditional paint.

The cleaning and consolidation of painted and gilded surfaces needs to be undertaken with extreme care and usually involves research, analysis and trials. Cliveden Conservation undertakes all this work including, where appropriate, the application of new gilding and traditional paint.

We apply it to such things as:

  • Architectural features
  • Ceilings
  • Statuary
  • Sculpture
  • Ceramics
  • Monuments
  • Heraldry
  • Glass
