Antique dark color

We darken the frame with several hands of shellac. The shellac will protect the gilded surface from external agents as well. The distressing process of aging the frame is done proceeding with three steps: first, we rub the gilding, second, we hit it with a little stone and third we make fake wormholes on top of it with a long thin nail. When all these three steps are finished, we usually decide if darkening the gilding a little more with few more hands of shellac. But careful, because we’re not done yet. The very last trick we have to put in place to complete the aging process of this reproduction of Baroque black frame is to apply one last hand of very dirt shellac just on top of the carvings to make stand them a little more from the shiny gilding.
