Decorative Plaster over Gold Leaf
The client gained inspiration for this foyer project after a trip to Russia. While visiting The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the client was in awe of the decor at Pavilion Hall in the winter palace. Beaux-Artes Studios, provided and designed the layout of the decorative plaster molding and also incorporated Abalone shell into the design. The plaster molding was glazed with a subtle antiquing solution and applied over gold leaf. This project is ongoing.

Copper Leaf Rangehood
The client wanted to use copper accents for her kitchen renovation. It was cheaper to purchase the rangehood in stainless steel and then have it copper leafed. The copper was antiqued with an asphaltum glaze.
