What is the History of Gold Leafing on Furniture?
Human beings have admired gold for thousands of years. Its versatility and malleability have allowed artisans to use it for many purposes. Gold leaf was used extensively in Ancient Egypt to embellish symbols of the gods. Since then, the manufacture, application, and care of gold leaf haven't changed all that much.
How Should I Care for My Gold Leaf?
Properly cared for, gold leafing on furniture will last for several lifetimes. Unfortunately, it is often incorrectly cared for, touched-up or re-gilded with bronze or gold powder paints, damaging the leaf’s luster and brilliance. Aaron’s Touch Up can remove excess paint or finish and allow your gold leaf to shine through.
If we’re applying gold leaf for the first time, we use a special glue to attach gold leaf on furniture or other surfaces. Wiping with a wet cloth can damage the glue. We recommend dusting, brushing, or using a light vacuum for cleaning. Moisture, in general, can be damaging to the gold leaf.
