28-04-2015 Handlettering and gilding of a shop canopy

Worldwide shops adorned with luxurious canopies and awnings. Usually, these are also used as advertising material by letter painting the name or logo of the store. Erik Winkler now has developed a technique in which the handlettering and gilding with gold leaf of a marquis or shop canopy can be brought to an even better result.

Handlettering and gilding of a marquis or canopy with gold leaf. This is rarely applied and is mainly because it is so incredibly difficult. Gold leaf is very thin, difficult to apply, the substrate may crack and the canvas itself ensures that paint is sucked up , and therefore does not allow clean straight lines. As of now these are all problems of the past , Erik Winkler has a combination of techniques applied thus achieved an unparalleled high gilding gloss without flared edges and crackle in the subsurface. Overall a beautiful canopy with gold leaf gilded letters wich will make the store shine .
