FINISHES

Orb frame all finishes
We offer a wide range of finishes from chalky, tinted gesso shades to traditional gold and silver metal leaf, highly polished ‘bone’ and rich ‘ebony’ black. Frames are hand-finished in our London workshop by our team of gilders who have over 20 years experience in this specialised field. Traditional gesso is applied in layers to each frame and finely sanded between coats to create a smooth base, ready for finishing.
