Activator for Gloss Size
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.
