Croxford and Saunders pride themselves on the quality of their gilding and its artistic use. We offer both architectural oil gilding, high lustre faux water gilding and studio based water gilding.
With our experienced team Croxford and Saunders work on sites both nationally and internationally and have completed many high profile projects including some of the largest residential projects in Europe.
With a keen eye on the creative arts and its inclusion into interior decoration we utilise both a passion for the history of decoration and traditional painting techniques to offer both designers and architectural practices a broad knowledge and range of gilding services.
We think that interior decoration is at its best an art, with many older lesser used techniques such as gold rehausse, gold sgraffito and faux Boulle work overdue a long awaited re appraisal.
Gold undeniably has a unique impact on a decorative scheme as either the leading component in a scheme or as a support for architectural detail, such as repique or with other techniques such as trompe l’oeil or grisaille.
We as a company also understand that gold can be an expensive consideration when undertaking a decorative scheme and so also offer a range of more economical alternatives including the use of imitation gold and silver leaf, metallic powder treatments and bronzing or coppering, most of which compare fairly with antiqued leafing or where a high lustre is not the required look.
