We use the old school method of hand gilding and hand painting with 23k gold leaf, for the ultimate gold look. This method has been used since the Egyptian days and is still performed by artisans worldwide for a rich and classy creation. Gold leaf is typically recommended for wood boats or surfaces, and is then varnished over for a smooth sharp appearance. However, 23k gold leaf vinyl is recommended on fiberglass and metal surfaces. Yes, that’s right! Real gold!!!
