Bringing Life to the Boy and Paddle Statue with 24k Gold Leaf


Boy and Paddle Statue with 24k Gold Leaf

We recently completed another fantastic project as part of the Art Gilding Academy. This project was a City of Sydney Council restoration commissioned by RJC Group, which tasked us with giving life back to the Boy and Paddle cast iron statue in Paddington, NSW.

Boy and Paddle Statue with 24k Gold Leaf

The statue was delivered to our studio, and we started work covering it with 24k gold leaf. Our team worked diligently to ensure that every detail was covered. Finally, after much hard work and dedication, the statue was restored to its original state and mounted back onto a fountain in Strong Memorial Reserve in Paddington, NSW.

We love being able to bring history back to life through our artistry! The entire process was an absolute delight and a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved. From starting out with bare metal to restoring its former glory with 24k gold and mounting it back up – this project could not have gone better!

We are always proud of the work that we do, but this project especially gave us great pride.
