Application of gold leaf
Afrodite globe bar is handmade by our expert craftsmen. The application of gold leaf is a job of extreme precision: it needs a lot of care, delicacy and attention in all the processing steps.
The first phase starts with the application, with the use of a simple brush, of an emulsion of glue on the wooden components such as base, equatorial circle, columns and knob. This emulsion will allow the gold to bond.
After cutting the 22 carat real gold leaf, we proceed with the application of the same on the wood, always spreading it with the use of a brush. The application can also take very long times between one phase and another and requires a dry environment without air changes.
After being spread and smoothed, it is fixed in order to obtain the special warm, elegant and luminous gold finish.
