We regularly gild the cardinal points (letters) on our weathervanes in 23.5 carat gold leaf, an optional extra that can be selected when ordering through the website. It’s a really special touch that is guaranteed to stand out and be noticed as it sparkles in the sunlight. Last week we gilded an entire laser cut Sun; at first a challenging prospect as it’s such a large, flat area with several fiddly curves and cut outs to work around. It did take ages and used an entire book of gold leaf, but think the finished result is fantastic. We’ve played about with gilding this design before, but just highlighting the rays around the edge and the arrow too.
