TN shellac in flakes
Shellac is used both to insulate porous surfaces prior to size application and to polish and subtly protect finished gold leaf. Once dry it enhances surface warmth subtly.DETAILS
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.
Natural resin in ready-to-use solution recommended to subtly protect and polish leaf gilding, both precious metal and imitation. Extra-pale 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.DETAILS
