Water Gilding Workshop             
Los Angeles

St. Gerard Majella Roman Catholic Church.

This is a separate optional two-day gilding workshop.  Water gilding is a traditional and highly skilled technique used for the gilding of icons. During this workshop students will learn all the stages of water gilding technique using 23 carat gold leaf. Beginning with the preparation of the board which is done by applying linen then covering with many layers of gesso. The last stage of the process is applying the clay bole and finally burnishing the gold with an agate stone which results in gold that is smooth and shines like a mirror, obtaining a brilliant and very impressive effect.
Those students who participate in the water gilding workshop will practice the water gilding on the halo of the Virgin Mary icon, which is the icon that will be completed in the icon painting workshop immediately following the water gilding workshop.
Each student will practice the water gilding with any needed assistance given by the instructor, Theodoros Papadopoulos.
