Glass gilding in Washingon, DC. Barcelona restaurant is located at 1622 14th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20009. 23 karat double gold leaf lettering with painted black outline and protective black backup paint. An installation like this takes a full day to complete. First the outline is painted onto the glass, then the gold leaf is applied by hand. Drying time is required between each layer of painting and gilding. Finally the gold leaf is patched where needed and then the backup paint is applied to the back of each letter.
The remaining gold is eradicated. You can see part of the process in these photos. If you would like a quote for glass gilding at your business or home, please contact Designs & Signs today!
