Gold leaf gilding has traditionally been revered as the ultimate expression of wooden boat lettering.  One of the definitive benefits of 23K gold leaf is its distinction from any other material. On wooden boats, it is classic and elegant. If the boat is cared for and revarnished regularly, the gold will last for years. 


Gold leaf lettering can also be used to achieve beautiful designs on many surfaces. Sharon Smithem can provide custom professional gold leaf for your wooden boat, house numbers for your historic home, or entrance signs for your cottage.
