All in color! To add elegance, brilliance, and beauty to a piece of furniture or decorative object, try gilding and lacquering. Once you’ve learned the techniques of water and oil gilding, applying loose leaf and more, you’ll be ready to begin. Transform a terra-cotta pot, a room screen, a floor lamp, and a wooden box, especially if it has a decorative feature, such as a border in relief, which can be highlighted in luminous gold or silver. Apply a raised motif to a laquered cart, and gold and silver moon and star shapes to a bowl. Turning an ordinary object into a stunning focal point of a room will be easy!
