Our Hand Finishes

A gypsum plaster that we make ourselves using a special recipe. Once made and ‘cooked’ we then carefully layer it onto the frame of the artwork or mirror. It can take many layers to achieve a beautifully smooth, marble like finish.

Crackled Gesso
Using our gesso recipe we carefully apply the plaster to fabric then let it dry slowly and then hand crackle to create a lovely antiqued finish.

Gesso Tints
To further enhance the distressed look we apply earth pigments.

Hand Painted
We offer a wide range of acrylic, acrylic gesso and buttermilk paints which can be hand painted onto your frame.

Final Finishes
The final layer in the process. Each final finish is applied by hand. Often the process requires a number of layers and polishing in between for a high quality lasting effect. Finishes we apply by hand include beeswax, matt varnish, shellac and lacquered finishes.
