Gold gilt frame decorations (Cassetta frame)

The carving is handmade. You can watch a video of the carving process by clicking the following link which drives you to our Youtube Channel: 


When the gold leaf is dry we start to decorate the surfaces making ornates motif by using a punch. The punch can either be made with a group of long and thick nails fixed together or just by one nail. The textured surface produced by this punching looks very nice. See the video below to know more about this technique.


Patina (Dark color)

“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to how dark is the frame. Apart from dark gold, the age of frames is determined by few cracks and tiny broken parts. For this reason, our gilder uses some kinds of stones to hit the frame. Also, the woodworms are fake as well, and you will be able to notice them by analyzing the pictures above.
