    Size made up from a yellow water-base (component 1), which allows a very bright and glossy gold finish, very close to the burnishing effect. The gold leaf can be attached after 30/60 mins. depending on the surface and environmental conditions. Whenever the size should dry, it will be necessary to reactivate its adhesive power through the relevant activator (component 2), especially if there are large surfaces to be gilded. In order to obtain even, glossy gilding, tamp the gilded surface using a cotton cloth.

    Activator for Gloss Size

    Sizes

    Suitable for gilding on all surfaces, both indoor and outdoor.

    It is applied onto the dry yellow or transparent-base gloss size (component 1), to reactivate its adhesive power. The thinnest layer possible of activator is spread over the surface using a brush or by tamping with cotton cloth. Before application of the gold leaf, check that the activator is dry, otherwise the gilding could appear opaque or stained. Only a few minutes are required for correct drying. The activator can also be used a long time after the size has been applied. In order to obtain even, glossy gilding, tamp the gilded surface using a cotton cloth.
