An exceptional, self-levelling and fast setting size for use in gold leafing. Designed to retain elasticity. The Fast Dry Gold Size allows gilding to begin in about an hour, and engine turning for up to an additional 8 hours after application.
PUK Tip: Tinting your 1 Shot Fast Dry Gold Size with up to 5% 1 Shot 134-L Chrome Yellow (for Gold leaf) or 195-L Medium Gray (for Silver or Aluminum leaf) will aid in both making sure you apply your size evenly, and will render any "holidays" in your gild, less obvious.
This thorough sourcebook details the art of gilding with step-by-step instructions and profuse illustrations, covering both the basics of handling gold leaf as well as advanced techniques and applications. It carefully explains the basic procedures for creating gold leaf window signs - from layout, pounce patterns and gilding, to backing up, finishing and varnishing. An excellent investment for the serious Gold Leafer
