Gilding

 

Gilding is the ancient process of applying gold leaf, metal leaf or powder to a solid surface. The techniques for gilding may vary according to the materials in use, but they all have the same object of producing the elegant effect of a metallic surface.

 

The Egyptians, who produced some of the earliest gilding, would have said that nothing looks like real gold. They did not have the variety of finishes that are now available and your objectives may be different.
