When I started gilding I was feeling my way instinctively.  My grandfather came by and gave me a few gem tips and a lot of encouragement… that’s what I try to do with our ‘Signsmith’ courses – help youngsters gain a meaningful love.  NG

The Sublime Power of Gold – you gotta have it!

.

I love this metal so much I am starting Gold Panning tours in Italy in 2014 – info updates shortly.

.

The power of 24ct gold has on passers by is what makes it such a key asset to a growing business and signwriter’s tool set.  From all angles it is visible in the most spectacular way … the sun never bleaches it from view, in mid afternoon it glows much as it does at dawn and under artificial lighting it becomes gloriously luminous..

.

‘Nothing conveys as much impact on a window as gold leaf.’ Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978:7

.

We believe it is true… gold leaf is the ultimate visual statement and yet affordable.  It remains the very best way to enhance the spirit of success and sensational visual appeal.

Please enjoy the examples of my gold leaf work across London.

Footnote …. gold is also becoming valuable for other, more practical reasons, and not just jewellery (which accounts for around 80% of the 161,000 tonnes of gold in the world today). In medicine and space exploration, for instance, and especially electronics, gold is now an essential component.

“Any electrical gadget, from your iPod to your telephone, will have gold contacts in it,” says Green.

“And a lot of modern technology simply wouldn’t work without gold.”

All told, he reckons the electronics industry consumes around 400 tonnes of the metal each year (out of a total annual world production of approximately 2,500 tonnes).

And “consumes” is the word, because, for the first time, most of what is being used will never be recovered. The quantities in each device are individually so small, it would not be worth the money to try.

Gold, in other words, will no longer be endlessly reused. It has become mortal. It will always have value – as copper, tin, titanium and all metals do – but it will never be special again. And one day, perhaps, Gordon Brown will be able to say he told us so.
