Gesso From a Chemical Point of View

Raised & Flat Gold Gilding 

Jerry Tresser, Instructor

Gilding by Jerry Tresser

Learn techniques of both flat and raised gilding with Jerry Tresser, who developed a method for gilding based on Cennini's centuries-old gesso formula. His gesso can be used with brush, ruling pen, quill and pointed or broad-edge pen. Mr. Tresser's techniques are applicable for use on paper and other substrates.

Space is limited and filled on a first-come-first-served basis. 
Advance registration required (and highly encouraged).
