Jeanne JULIEN worked in different workshops in Paris and elsewhere in France to multiply her technical skills and perfect her know-how.
French gilder since 10 years, Jeanne JULIEN has been working for her own gilding workshop in Nantes since its launch in July 2013 : Atelier la Feuille d’Or.
Her main jobs are :
- Restoration of gilded wooden artifacts, such as painting frames, pieces of furniture or antiques
- Gold finish for specific requests (newly crafted objects)
Gilding can be applied to all supports and materials : wood, metal, stone, glass,…
Coating materials are numerous : gold (different shades comprising yellow, red, green or white), silver, palladium, moongold, copper…
And the surface finish can include taints, wear, or powdering.
The workshop’s skills are :
- Water gilding (preceded by surface preparation and fine carving)
- Oil gilding
- Gelatin gilding (mostly adapted to smooth surfaces such as glass)
And the jobs can be done inside the workshop, or on-site (indoor as well as outdoor).
