Painting with Glazes on Gold Leaf

by | Jun 27, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Glazes create transparent paint overlays that work well on special surfaces like gold leaf. Use glazes to create a wide variety of painting effects, and to illuminate color. Glazing has been used throughout painting history and is still widely used today for all mediums, and all styles ranging from realism to abstraction.

A common definition of a glaze is simply a transparent color, or application of a transparent layer of color onto a painting. The simplicity can be deceiving as there is much to be said about glazing. In the video below I demonstrate how to glaze over gold leaf. For additional information and demonstration, see links below on helpful topics such as How to Prepare a Gold Leaf Surface, and other Glazing articles.
