Picture Framing Studio

Gilding & Hand Finished Frames

We have a reputation for producing the highest quality hand-finished, water-gilded frames for artists and art collectors.

We use a variety of gold leaf finishes, including standard 24 carat gold, 22 carat moon gold, white gold, and a selection of coloured golds, together with imitation metal gold leaf.

Final bole colour washes are carefully layered in subtle tones onto a prepared gesso base, then gilded, distressed and burnished to achieve a beautiful bespoke finish.

Remember these are hand-finished frames, therefore the appearance of each one is unique.

For those who want a cheaper frame, colour-staining, lime wax and natural wax finished are highly effective.

Prices vary considerably between size and type of finish, so please ask for a quotation.
