Descriptions and explanations of the materials, equipment and traditional, professional methods of oil and water gilding are clearly set out in 'Practical Gilding'. Originally conceived as a pamphlet for musical instrument makers, the authors soon discovered that by expanding the text they had written a book that would be an essential tool for craftspeople, conservators, gilders, decorative artists, antique dealers and collectors.
