C. Roberson & Co. Water Gold Size for use on paper.
Application: apply in a thin coat so that there is no pooling or excess sitting on the surface. Once applied it should reach a dry tack (similar to sellotape) in around 10 - 20 minutes before it can be gilded on. The size will remain "open" for a short time and if it dries out to much can be re-activated by breathing directly over the applied size. Allow as long as possible for the size to "cure" before handling the gilded item.
Please note the drying time will depend on the surrounding conditions. If it's cold, it will take longer to reach a dry tack and then fully dry. If its hot, it may dry quicker and not remain "open" as long as desired.
Clean brushes water.
15ml glass jar.
