Product description


The Technique of Raised Gilding
Author: Jerry Tresser
Publisher: Michelle Jordan Publication, 1992
Format: 71 pages with photographs in color in a Portable Document Format (PDF) or Flip Book on CD

New color photos, never before seen microscopic pictures of the internal workings of the gesso. Provides an accurate, scientific and historical analysis of the materials and techniques devoted to the preparation and application of the gesso related to raised gilding. The most comprehensive book ever written on the subject of raised gilding for the calligraphic community is now available after being out of print for 22 years.

Jerry Tresser demystifies raised gilding, breaking it down into clearly explained steps. He defines his terms and materials so that the modern scribe can understand the process and apply it successfully. This book is a valuable manual for the professional and serious student.

The Technique of Raised Gilding is a gold treasure with its fascinating historical and how to information made clear through readable, precise language backed up by expert chemical knowledge. When put into practice, the reward is not only exciting but deeply satisfying.

Employing modern methods of investigation, Jerry has solved the mystery of laying gold. He is sharing his discovery with us by de-mystifying the ancient craft and making it available to us.

A great deal of research and thought has gone into the preparation of the "Technique of Raised Gilding" Consideration and thanks should be given to Jerry Tresser for re-evaluating the techniques of Cennini by those practitioners of the craft of gilding and by those just starting.

Mr. Tresser has used the technique of modern science to unravel the mystery surrounding Cennini's formula for gesso. The "Technique of Raised Gilding" is the most comprehensive treatise of gilding I have read.
