About this Artwork

The bronze Buddha Statues in the temple halls will become dim after a long time. If it is a bronze statue, it will oxidize and rust, and it will seriously corrode and damage. The Buddha Statue may lost its dignity, making it seem impossible to be happy with the Buddha Statue. Therefore, we have to gold leaf Buddha Statue, and we can use gold leaf or Gilding to gold the Bronze Buddha Statue.
 
What is Gold leaf ?

It refers to the use of traditional gold-leaf craft to paste pure gold foil on copper Buddha statues to make them look golden and brilliant. Copper statues can be used for a long time to increase the sacred and solemn atmosphere.
 
How to make the Gold leaf?

1. Surface treatment,
Before applying gold foil to copper sculptures, the surface of the copper sculptures must be treated first to ensure that they are dry, dust-free, free of oil, oil wax, and small holes and gaps. If there are small holes or gaps on the surface, the primer must be filled After the primer is dry, sand the copper carving surface with sandpaper until it is smooth. At the same time, the surface must be sprayed with adhesive and sealing primer repeatedly to ensure that no rust will occur for a long time.
 
2. Gluing,
Spread the special glue evenly on the surface of the copper sculpture, and repeatedly contact and absorb the glue with rice paper until the glue has only a very thin layer left, and the gold application can begin.
 
3. Cover with gold leaf,
Gently clamp the gold foil paper with tweezers, and stick it on the copper carving surface, then blow it gently with your mouth to make it flat. Generally, two people need to divide the labor when pasting. The cotton cloth was lightly tapped on the gold foil that had been pasted to make it fully conform to the copper carving. Finally, after it was completely dry, it was sprayed with a special high-strength protective film, and the gold application was completed.
