One thing I’m often asked to make are museum quality gold leaf nameplates. They are primarily used for fine artist oil paintings and limited edition bronze sculptures.
My nameplates are each gilded with 23 karat gold leaf on hard wood plates. They can be antiqued (darkened), have added imitation fly specks added, or rubbed to show the bole color underneath. Other colors of gold such as moon gold (a warm white gold), lemon gold, white gold, silver, or palladium can also be used. If you send a photo of the frame I can match the metal color. Each are handlettered with permanent black ink and sealed. For each artist or collector, we will work together to determine the ideal lettering style for the body of work or painting.
My precut sizes are 2″ by ½″, 2 ½″ by ½″, 3″ by ⅝″, 3 ½″ by ¾″, 4″ by ¾″, 4 ½″ by ¾″, 5″ by 1″, 6″ by 1″ or 1 ½”, and 7″ by 1″ or 1 ½″ with the decorative rounded ends. Additional shapes and sizes are at additional cost and may take an extra week or two.
