The art of casting metals into a chosen shape and size. The process starts by melting metal into a liquid, pouring it in a mould with a cavity of the desired shape, and removing the material, or casting after the final work gets cool and then solidified. The solidified part can be ejected or even broken out of the mould. This technique is one of the most used for making intricate forms that would be difficult to have from other methods.
The term gilding covers a number of decorative techniques for applying fine gold leaf or powder to solid surfaces such as wood, stone, or metal to give a thin coating of gold. Nowadays it is used to create and decorate unique design pieces.
