Architecture Student Practices The Age Old Art Of Gilding
Architecture sophomore Madeline Ham-Ost didn't know much about gilding when the Honors college presented her with the opportunity to take a brief course about the art.

Gilding involves applying thin sheets of any material -- whether it be gold, silver or even aluminum -- to decorate an object.

"Gilding is a very precise and specific type of art where you have to be careful about what you're doing, very slow about your movements and think about where you're putting lines," said Madeline.
