One of the few places that the ancient art of gilding (covering a surface with a precious metal) is still alive is in the framing industry. The centuries old practice is performed much the same as it always was by artisans employed by moulding manufacturers and by the artisans at Frame Craft.

Because of the time consuming process we frequently use the available mouldings, but often times produce our own gilded finishes to achieve the unique finish that is required for the piece we're working on.

Many shops offer the same available products but few employ the extra skill and effort to make the finished work truly custom.
