Reverse Gold Leaf Gilded Window Sign for Adriano Carbone, The Block Arcade
One of my regular customers artist David Bromley, requested his new outlet BROMLEY & Co. to be sign written using Gold leaf. While I was doing the work for David, the centre manager Grant Cohen introduced himself and after a coffee or two, “Adriano Carbone’s” new gold gilded sign was born.
The first photo shows what the leaf looks like when initially applied using a water gild method.
Then burnishing is necessary which takes considerable skill. Shown is the finished Hand lettered 24 karat Gold Leaf Sign.
“Beautiful lettering Ray, I am impressed by your skill and work ethic... thank you!”
I was grateful for his comment and observations as he also is a Master Craftsman.
