Gold Blasting with Prophet Elias

A stunning gold print with the Prophet Elijah (July 20), one of the greatest prophets, who foretold Christ’s coming to Earth 816 years before his birth. He was endowed with miraculous power, while he fought zealously and selflessly for God and passionately fought against idolatry.

The prophet Elijah exercised his prophetic gift for 25 years, and so great was his faith that he brought down fire from heaven three times, stopped the rain, and raised the dead, and finally ascended to heaven in a chariot of fire. It is characteristic that its chapels are built on hills and mountain peaks and are celebrated with great crowds every year.

Sandblasted Gold Printing: Features

In the icon with the representation of Prophet Elias, the hagiographer monk used the technique of gold printing creating a work of unique beauty. Gold-stamping is a kind of hot-stamping technique. Hot-stamping is the method by which very thin metal gold sheet is placed on surfaces such as wood, leather, cardboard, plastic by pressing a heated embossed plate (plate) on our surface. Around the image you also use the technique of sandblasting, it is the technical treatment that achieves the corrosion of part or all of a surface by pouring sand under pressure.
