I’d love to know who carves the projects. Your gilding is exquisite! Both of your projects are beautiful.

My Iranian friend, you do magnificent work. Sadly, the gilder’s craft is nearly dead here now, as the cost of materials has gotten so high. I remember taking an interest in it as a teen, when gold was only $35 per ounce, and decided it was out of my price range then. Since gold is now about 30 times as much, I have sadly given up ever trying the craft.
You do great work, my friend. Congratulations on keeping your craft alive in so wonderful a way.

How does one ‘gild’ ? Can you explain it for me?
What does the carving signify? Is there a story behind the use of the images?

Impressive ! The way you got the gild so straight with no seam lines when you antiqued it. Did you hand rub the second gild ?
-- Have a great day.

I was at a loss for words beyond WOW earlier. I’ll add now that I am deeply impressed by such craftsmanship. This is real beauty in all aspects- woodcarving, woodworking, gilding and finishing. Absolutely gorgeous!

friends I really surprised by so many approval and am really glad, thank you first i should say that it is not reall gold leaf it is imitation leaf, I buy every book of 500 sheets of leaf only for about 20 dollars! so it is not expensive, but the process really need too much care and experience, I would be glad to share my experience in gilding if you wish. now that I see this project has been seen and approved by craftsman I’ll try to put ‘befor, after’ project and on process pictures here, again thanks for your comments. if you wish to email me it is email@example.com
