Reggie Ezell – The Gilded Boy!

2019 March 16 & 17

Gilding on Traditional Bases

Join us when Reggie Ezell, from Chicago, leads us in traditional gilding. 

We will use seven different metal leafs on four different acrylic gilding bases. The emphasis will be on ease of use and dependable, spectacular results! You can use this short course as an introduction or “brush up” to previous instruction on gilding.

You will have several small (glittering!) finished pieces by the end of this 2 day course. No lettering experience is necessary.
Once you experience it I hope you will consider the supply fee a bargain.
