Decorative Gilded Letters

With Evelyn Wong

Starting date : 8 June 2024

Fees : HK$ 1,170 or US$ 150

Workshop Description

I'm really excited to be teaching with the Gentle Penman again this year and branching off from our last workshop, this year will be a bit more intense (don't worry if you're a beginner this will definitely be suitable for you too).  I will guide you through the whole process to create this "Be Kind" piece, or more importantly to guide you to find your own style and technique to make a piece that is uniquely yours.


In the first class we will focus on drawing out the word "Be Kind" using the Versal script.  Focusing on the layout of the piece and how to alter and tweak the letter forms when you combine the letters together. 


In the second class we will spend time transferring our outline onto the watercolour paper and then finish off the class with brainstorming pattern designs and filigree for your letters. 


For the third class we will look at some of the tools used in gilding and learn how to create a raised gold effect when gilding the letters using 23k loose gold leaf and instacoll. 


We will then finish the class off by working on paintbrush techniques, how to practice having more control of your brush when painting in the patterns and the filigree around the letters.
