Wood-cardboard (very hard cardboard tube of industrial type) gilded with gold leaf. The gilding is enhanced with colored varnishes that are also treated with sgraphito techniques. Indoor use only, for soft ambient lighting.

The wood-cardboard is coated then the ornamentation has been engraved in the thickness of the plaster. The surface was then gilded with tempera on red bolus, the finishes were made of matt and burnished (polishing gilding agate stone). Finally the gilding was enhanced with colored varnishes treated for the red tone in sgraphito.

Creation sent to France. Maintenance of the creation by wiping with a soft cloth excluding aqueous or solvent-based products.
