We had the unique opportunity to gild the approximately 4 m high cross on the steeple of the Orthodox church in Zugdidi, Georgia. The metal cross was made especially for this church, which has been under construction since 2008.
In order to prepare and finish the cross appropriately, we primed it several times and then applied pure gold leaf using the traditional oil gilding process. It was an extremely valuable experience for us not only to be able to demonstrate our skills in this way, but also to get to know the extraordinary hospitality of the Georgian people.
