Description

I use traditional sign writing and gilding techniques to produce these 'circus' style letters.

The letters are made by firstly painting the outline and then the inset and background colours using enamel paints. Next 23 carat gold leaf is applied using a technique known as reverse glass water gilding which produces a mirror-like finish. I only use genuine 23 carat gold, no imitation gold or foil as the finish is far superior. Nothing adds luxury like real gold.

Finally your letter will be mounted in a simple but contemporary frame. The glass size used is 21 x 30 centimetres.

PLEASE NOTE: Each letter is made to order and so is bespoke and crafted to your to your precise requirements. You can choose the colours you want to match with your decor or, if you are giving as a gift, to suit the person it is intended for. It will take me 5 to 7 days from receipt of your order to complete painting and gilding of each letter. Once your order has been placed I will be in contact to confirm which letters you require as well as your colour scheme.

If you require a bespoke sign or perhaps a combination of numbers and letters then please contact me as I am able to satisfy any order in any style you require.

Inspiration

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.
