Last remaining stock. Easy to use water based acrylic gold size for applying gold leaf, Schlag or bronze powders. Suitable for indoor use, the size can be used over any non-porous surface including metal, glass, mirrors, baked polymer clay or glazed ceramics. It can also be used on surfaces, such as wood, canvas and board, that have been primed and sealed with a varnish. The difference between an oil based size and an acrylic based size is that the oil based size is self-levelling whereas acrylic size may retain brush marks. To help avoid this, apply the acrylic gold size as evenly as possible using a soft brush.
Surfaces should be free from dust, cleaned and dry before painting with a thin coat of size. The metal or gold leaf can be applied when it has become tacky. Buff gently with cotton wool if desired (do not use a lateral motion as this will mark the leaf) and brush away scewings that have not adhered.
Roberson's Acrylic Gold Size is ready for gilding in 15-20 minutes and has an open time of 1-2 days. Do not allow the size to dry on brushes, wash with soap and water.
