Selhamin Poliment is a specially refined clay bole used to prepare surfaces for water-gilding.
This is wet mixed, ready to use straight from the pot. Mix with rabbit skin glue and a little distilled water to make a high-quality bole for application.
Selhamin bole also comes in a dry clay version for those who wish to mix their own from scratch and have more control over the water content.
Once prepared this bole is applied to a traditional gesso surface, ready for gold or silver leaf to be applied and burnished.
