Smalti group “G”
gold and colored gold, or smalti oro.
The most spectacular color group in the collection of Orsoni Smalti Veneziani. The gold mosaic !
During the Byzantine period ( ca 350 AD – 1100 AD ) this material was already very popular in churches. It is shiny, sparkling. The perfect material to create special effects and luxury in your mosaics.
Smalti gold is made by placing a sheet of gold leaf between two sheets of glass. The base glass is thick, while the transparent or coloured covering glass is thin ( card) to protect the gold. Different colours can be obtained by using sheets of different carats and/or cards of different colours.
Smalti gold and coloured gold are available in sizes 10 x 10 mm; 20 x 20 mm and 80 x 80 mm.
