Illuminator

The illuminator specialises in adorning parchment with ornate lettering and pictures. Traditionally, illuminators used gold or silver to decorate parchment, but contemporary artisans may use other materials. After sketching a design, the artisan mixes pigments with animal glue and applies it to the parchment.
