Gold artwork gifts are a beautiful way to elevate any room. From a golden frame to a gold sculpture, there are many choices available for discerning shoppers.
The shop, Golden Mean, only opened its doors in March of this year, but owner Grace Milligan had dreamed about the curated gift and art gallery for years.
Framed Modern Paintings
Striking gold wall art can instantly make a statement. Pairing golden frames with posters and photographs is a great idea for creating a luxury look, while a more minimal frame with curls and ornamentation will emphasize the elegance of classic paintings. Using the best-in-class Mac app ImageFramer, it’s easy to add elegant golden frames and mats to photos.
This framed print by Thomas Kinkade Studios is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to celebrate their love of the golden days. The print is a limited edition and comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity and tamper-evident holographic seal. Printed on high-quality satin art paper and ships in a protective sleeve to prevent bending. Hang it anywhere in your home to enjoy the beauty of a golden day.
Gilded Ceramic Vase Sculptures
This vase features a beautiful gold and pink floral design on a natural clay background. This one of a kind piece is hand painted with premium gold lustre glazes and fired to a stunning finish. This item must be hand washed. Each vase is unique and may differ slightly from the photo shown.
Eve Kaplan’s hand built ceramic work is infused with inspiration from 18th century gilded pieces yet is completely modern and original. Her whimsical carved flowers, gold dots and real 22k luster are sure to add a touch of elegance to any home.
When Mark Newstead first saw a two-foot-tall vase that was a rich cobalt color with a band of gold on it, he knew right away that the object wasn’t just any old decoration. The Asia ceramics expert at auction house Dreweatts says combining gold and silver on the same ceramic would have been “technically very difficult to achieve” for the vase, which was made in China’s Qing Dynasty.
The seller of this etched earth-toned vase notes that it’s “handmade with love and care by an American potter.” This beautiful piece features a gradient from dark brown at the top to deep golden yellow at the base, with violets emerging from the transition. This beautiful objet is the perfect addition to any table or mantlepiece, and would make an attractive gift for any occasion.
Gold Leafed Portrait Sculpture
Gold and silver leaf sheets are a great way to make any painting shine. They can be added to any type of painting, whether it is oil, watercolor, or acrylic. The process is simple, but there are a few important things to keep in mind when using these precious metals.
For example, it is best to use genuine gold foil if possible since it will last longer than imitation. Also, it is best to use a quality sealer after the painting is complete so that the paint and foil stay protected from UV damage.
Adding gold leaf to a portrait will add an ethereal touch to the subject. Gold can be used to highlight a woman’s face, dress, or hair. It can even be used to create a pattern on a piece of clothing.
You can buy whole gold leaf sheets or flakes at art supplies stores. If you want to apply it yourself, start by underpainting your painting with the color that you want to peek through. Then cover the surface with adhesive spray or a thin layer of paint. You can also buy gold leaf pens that deliver a smooth, controlled flow of metallic foil from a small tip. This makes it easier to add outlines and dots.
