Gilding Size

Any Metal Leaf or Metallic Foil project starts with gilding size. We offer both water-based and oil-based gold leaf size for your use. Gilding size creates a thin, tacky film on your surface that accepts gold, copper, and imitation silver leaf, as well as our Tamise Metal Flakes, Variegated and Celestial Leaf, and even Mica Powders for “flash gilding”. Applying Gilding Size will also be your first step for using Metallic Foils, which are burnished and transferred onto the properly sized surface.
