Gold Leaf was made popular by the early Italian fresco artists. Their technique illuminated the Saints and enriched the Royals. Following this ancient application, students learn the steps to add gold leaf to paintings along with the use of natural mineral pigment paints. Join us at Hat Ranch Gallery while Jennifer Rugge (Hat Ranch Gallery artist) teaches you to paint like the Fresco Masters!
