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 genuine copper gold leaf is applied using a technique known as oil gilding. I only use genuine copper leaf, no imitation copper or foil as the finish is far superior.
The colour scheme for this style is a black outline with ivory upper inset and a light grey background, finished with copper leaf in the lower portion of the letter.
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 to you. It will take me 5 to 7 days from receipt of your order to complete painting and gilding of each letter.
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.
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.
