In gilding, shellac is used as a varnish for gold leaf, as a surface protection with reasonable durability and as a sealant for porous surfaces prior to size gilding.



TN shellac in flakes

Shellac is used both to seal porous surfaces prior to size application and to give shine and light protection to gilded finishes. Once dry it gives a warm tone to the surface.

DETAILS

Dewaxed shellac in flakes

Shellac is used both to seal porous surfaces prior to size application and to give shine and light protection to finished gold leaf. Compared to ordinary shellac, dewaxed shellac produces a more transparent result once applied and after drying.

DETAILS

Dewaxed shellac in solution

Shellac in ready-to-use solution recommended to give shine and light protection to gilding, both precious metal and imitation. Once dry it gives a warm tone to the surface.

DETAILS

Extra-clear dewaxed shellac in solution

Extra-clear dewaxed shellac in solution is more transparent and less amber-coloured than classic dewaxed shellac, enabling gold leaf to be protected without altering its surface colour. Ideal for silver surface finishes and more generally for finishes not requiring a warmer than natural colour.
