The Art of Gold Leaf

Posted in Uncategorized on April 28, 2015 by stacystudios

Ron is currently working on a restored 1954 Chris Craft boat, a thing of beauty!

He has been commissioned by Chris at Sea Sonic Boat Company to letter the transom.

He is using 24 ct double thick gold leaf from England, and engine turning the finish, a technique that requires a very gentle and experienced touch. Unfortunately, there was a communication error as to the font the client wanted. As a result, the first book of gold and a day’s worth of time had to be all washed off !:(

But all ended well and the result is a work of beauty. I hope we can show you the whole boat finished, it’s really quite something!

Experience Thomson Okanagan Book

Posted in Uncategorized on April 15, 2015 by stacystudios

Apparently this lovely hard cover book should be out soon. It was about a year ago when we were in a flush feeling, vulnerable state of mind – and agreed to advertise our studio.

Granted, it is a beautiful book, but sadly, we are the only artists in it. There we are tucked amidst the wineries, hotels, golf courses and resorts.

We feel sort of weird about it, but I guess it’s a good thing?
