Special finishes and Gold Leaf
Explore the possibilities of the special finishes we can provide such as fresco or tadelakt plaster for a Moroccan feel.
Gold and silver leaf can add some glamour to any space, a lime or french wash or rust paint for a more rustic appearance.
We can provide expert advice and carry out the whole process. Projects we have worked on include heritage work, churches, theaters, casinos and super yachts, bars,office lobbys and residential interiors.
Walls with a special finish can provide added interest or an exciting feature solution.
Decorative Painting: A reproduction chinoiserie bureau bookcase, originally painted but the client wanted to change the colour scheme to 23 Kt gold leaf, green and magenta and left the selection of images up to me. Not often do we have this much creative license.
A client commissioned me to produce a new mirror. We agreed on a classical design. I used silicon moulds for the plaster castings and imitation gold to keep the costs down. Not a bad outcome.
