What is Glass Gilding?

What’s more luxurious than gold?

If you want to embed some precious metals into your glass such as gold, silver or copper…

Our glass gilding service is for you.

Imagine solid glass, with your name etched into it from layer after layer of 22-carat gold.

Or your company’s door, with texturous frosting and your logo etched into it by hand. By stacking layers of wafer thin gold on top of each other, your logo becomes a solid piece of gold.

Let this be the image that represents both you and your company.

You don’t have to utter a word for anyone to know that you mean business.

Do you need some glass gilding done for you?

    Fantastic service…Had a semi-framed installed (custom dimensions). Although price was on par with some of the other competitors (even the bigger companies), the immediate attention, professionalism and honesty of Mark, was what made the decision to go with. On the day, work was carried out quickly and cleaned everything afterwards. Extremely satisfied with the job and would gladly recommend him to family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is gilding?

Gilding is the process of applying precious metals (often gold) onto a material’s surface. It is a method of embellishing an object and is commonly used to create designs or add words to glass

Is it microwave safe?

No. If you’ve had your glassware gilded from us, you should not microwave it. This will cause the metal to overhead and spark. This may set off a fire and is a serious health hazard. Do not microwave gilded glassware.

What are some glass gilding ideas?

Commonly gilded glass items include wine glasses, vases, doors, and anything that is made to impress. Since it is delicate in nature, it is recommended to gild items that are not often handled, in order to increase longevity.
