Gyllenlær "Gilt Leather"


Gyllenlær kurs, detter er min lille skinnlapp etter første steg som er rissing og preging av skinnet. Det skal etterhvert dekkes med bladgull, eller såkalt komposisjonsgull altså messing. Så skal det males med oljefarger. Gleder meg til de neste stegene.

Workshop, I don't know the term in English; Golden leather is the closest I can think of, or gilt leather. This is my small leather flap after the first step of engraving and embossing. After this it shall be covered in gold leaf, or composition gold in other terms brass. Then painted with oil paint. Looking forward to the next step!
The technique was very popular during the baroque period in Europe, as wall tapestries, and fancy chair upholstering.
