Holbein Japan Gold Size
Size: 55 ml
Made from copal resin dissolved in turpentine and vegetable processing oils, Japan Gold Size may be used for tempera painting or as an oil painting medium, but it is primarily designed for gilding (gold leaf). For gilding, dilute in three parts of turpentine and apply to a non-absorptive surface. Then let dry to an almost dry stage of tackiness before applying the gold leaf which should be pressed on (not rubbed) with a clean piece of cotton. Drying may be retarded by mixing with oil color.
