I use traditional sign writing and gilding techniques to produce this copper leaf spaniel painting.
The painting is made by firstly painting the outline and and background using enamel paints. Next copper leaf is applied using a technique known as oil gilding which produces a beautiful textured finish. I only use genuine copper leaf, no imitation metal or foil as the finish is far superior.
Finally the painting is be mounted in a simple but contemporary frame. The glass size used is 18 x 24 centimetres.
PLEASE NOTE: It will take me 3 to 5 days from receipt of your order to complete painting and gilding of each spaniel. If you would like a different colour outline and background or frame, please state so at the time of your order.
If you require a custom animal portrait please contact me as I am able to tailor my style to individual animals.
I am a trained sign writer with a bad back so no more climbing up ladders or hefting around heavy pieces of wood for me! I've therefore decided to apply my skills to a slightly different medium and make them available to a wider audience. There are very few gilders working these days and most of them work as sign writers so these items are scarce but I hope I'll be able to bring them to a wider audience.
