Painting Seminar – Painting Gold



Isidor Stern has a golden hand for painting, and he leads the seminar that can teach you how to add a golden touch to your pieces. Isidor Stern has been gilding porcelain with real gold since 1980. The gold is dissolved in an acidic solution called aqua regia and then mixed with ash to create a dark color that is applied to pieces of porcelain. Firing the painted pieces at high temperatures burn up the aqua regia together with the ash and bind the 24 carat gold on to the porcelain.
