Today, as in times
past, the art of water gilding is a traditional centuries old technique.
It is a long and detailed process to which the artisans at Molduras
Giner devote all of their abilities and expertise. To develop this skill
takes no less than five years of apprenticeship. The result is unrivalled.
Only through hard work and dedication to this time-consuming process,
can all of the beauty be extracted from the noble materials. A moulding
that has been water gilded is easily recognised for its transparency,
its shine and the characteristic overlaps of the leaves.These qualities
convert each moulding into a "unique piece". The results have
never been equaled by any modern gilding technique.
