We first gild the flat surface and the moldings. When the gold leaf is dry we start to decorate the surfaces making ornates motif by using punches. The punches are made with a group of long and thick nail fixed together. The textured surface produced by this punching looks very nice because its effect change as the daylight coming from the windows changes. All together the holes made by the punch look like a unique 17th century Bolognese Baroque style ornate.
Patina (Dark color)
“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to the color of this gold gilt frame, more precisely refers to its old looking. To reach the patina (old looking), we tend to distress the surfaces quite a lot, using different kinds of stones to hit the carvings in order to create few fake tiny broken parts. In addition, the wormholes are fake as well and you will be able to see them analyzing in a deep way the picture detail attached above. In conclusion, any damaged little part of the frame is just a part of a bigger plane.
