Add a touch of the fancy, a touch of the ancient to your artwork... the Midas Touch! All that King Midas touched turned to gold, and this power can be yours! The Art Cellar carries a fine selection of gilding products. Yes, gilding, the ancient art of applying thin sheets of precious metals to solid objects. Oh, but it doesn't have to be all that precious! We sell imitation leaf as well. Looks like the real thing. Add some antiquing glaze for that olde-time look. Gold, silver, copper. Real, fake... we sell it all. Come on in and see for yourself; you won't be disappointed.
You don't have to be Byzantine to use this stuff; Andy Warhol loved it. Use it on frames, objects, and 2-D art (like drawings)!
In addition to the traditional leaf, we carry a new product called Simple Leaf. Each sheet (or "leaf") is backed with waxed paper that peels off when you've got it in place. That way you can actually touch the stuff with your hands without it self-destructing.
It's almost incredible.
Simple Leaf (gold/silver): 18 sheets for $7.45.
Real gold leaf: 25 sheets, $25-$38.
Real silver leaf: $20.
Add a touch of elegance to your creative vision. Gold leaf. Feel the sparkle.
