Gilded figures – the speciality of gilders and sculpture painters

Figures or sacred or profane origin are the classic speciality of gilders and sculpture painters. Using expertise from two areas, a figure can be transformed into a gilded figure.

Actually two separate professions, today this work is generally carried out by trained gilders and sculpture painters. The gilder deals with gilding and jewellery techniques. The sculpture painter takes care of the painting, the so-called setting of carvings, sculptures, art objects and various other items.
