No matter what the reason, if your headstone gilding is starting to fade, there are a number of ways to restore it. We can repaint or regild any headstone and bring it back to its former glory. Gilding is the process of applying a thin layer of gold to a surface. This can be done for a variety of reasons, but most often it is done to add a bit of luxury or decoration to an otherwise plain object. Headstone gilding also adds a bit of protection to the headstone itself. If you are looking to add a bit of luxury to an existing headstone, or if you simply want to protect it from the elements, gilding is a great option.
We can guide and assist you in the refurbishing of any memorial so your loved one has a beautiful and unique headstone that will last for years to come.
When it comes to headstone gilding, there are a number of things that can cause the gilding to fade. One of the most common reasons is simply the passage of time. Over time, the gilding will naturally start to fade and wear away. This is especially true if the headstone is exposed to the elements on a regular basis.
Another common reason for headstone gilding to fade is because of the type of gilding that was used. Some types of gilding are simply not as durable as others and will fade much quicker. This is why we only use high-quality gilding that is designed to withstand the elements.
Headstone gilding can also fade due to cleaning. If the headstone is cleaned too frequently or with harsh chemicals, it can strip away the gilding. This is why it's important to only clean the headstone as needed and to use gentle, pH-neutral cleaners.
