The term gilding covers a number of decorative techniques for applying fine gold leaf or powder to solid surfaces such as wood, stone, or metal to give a thin coating of gold. And while metallic paint finishes are alluring with their elegant shine, they simply cannot compete with the radiant luster of a gilded faux finish. The breathtaking depth and texture of gilding creates a rich, luxurious surface that will add drama to any space. Imago Dei’s gilded faux finishes can be added to just about any surface, from furniture to vaulted ceilings.
