Oroline Gilding Medium is a fluid water based acrylic size for gilding onto paper or parchment to create illuminated calligraphy or illustration with gold leaf.
The size is applied with either a dip pen or brush and allow to dry until tacky (5-15 minutes depending on humidity). Place the transfer gold leaf onto the sized area and smooth firmly with a lipstick shaped burnisher. If using loose gold leaf, cover with a sheet of glassine before pressing down. Brush away loose scewings which can be kept and used in small areas or repairs.
